James is a young person, homeless in Chicago.  He was living with his mom until drugs and other family conflicts forced him out. He then couch surfed with relatives, and even relocated out of town for a bit.

When James returned to Chicago he was sleeping outside. He then found a second family at La Case Norte, a youth organization in Chicago.

James has dreams of being a business owner and a professional dancer. You can just feel the positive energy when you are around this young man.

James is just one many many reasons we need to support services that help young people.

 

 

Very special thanks to La Casa Norte

This Invisible People road trip is made possible by  Sevenly and Virgin Mobile USA, who are partnering to end youth homelessness through Virgin Mobile USA’s initiative, RE*Generation. For more information please click here.

    I was affected by this video because James seems to be a good boy. He has a positive energy and he always smiles. I sincerely hope his dreams came true because he has ambition and everything to achieve his goals. By the way, I was glad to know that it exists organisations like La Case Norte which help young homeless people. These persons are in need and i think it’s cool to have associations like La Case Norte which help them to rebuild their life.

    James’ story is touching. He is a young boy who has lost everything because of drugs. Despite this it remains cheerful, ambitious and optimistic. He was alone and he managed to get by thanks to La Casa Norte, which is a homeless youth shelter in Chicago. This is an example for other young people living on the street. I hope he has the chance to fulfill his dreams. He is young it can start over his life and be happy.
