The bigger this program gets, the few kids sleep on the streets of Boston.
YouthHarbors has some awesome news! They've finally received the necessary funding to open two brand new sites by March 2015. Their first new location is expected to open in the Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester by the end of January, and the second is slated to open in Lowell High School by the end of March.
Brianna Chamberlain, YouthHarbors Associate Director of Development, is thrilled about the organization's growth. "We are very excited to continue expanding our YouthHarbors program," she said, "and we couldn't do it without the help of our generous supporters!"
YouthHarbors serves homeless unaccompanied high school students who statistically have only a 27% chance of graduating from high school. They work hard to help young people grow into self-sufficient adults by providing housing assistance, an engaged adult support network, and individualized life skills development lessons so they can find a safe home, graduate, and break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
