JT currently lives in a youth homeless shelter in Denver, Colorado. He has been homeless since last November. JT is 19.
Most homeless youth ‘couch surf’, which is homeless. The stories I’ve heard are horrible. Not knowing where you are going to sleep, and then having to do ‘things’ do get space on the couch is traumatic and no way to live.
I just happened to look down and noticed JT’s foot. It is infected from walking so much. He couldn’t afford shoes so wore a size too small until he got blisters and open sores.
JT has a job interview coming up and hopes to go back to school.
