I met Carly in Winnipeg, Canada. Carley has been homeless since she was seventeen. She was using drugs and her parents couldn’t take it anymore. The police came and picked her up, then dropped her off at a Salvation Army homeless shelter.

The good news is Carly now has a year clean and sober. When I asked here what she wanted people to know about homelessness she responded “it’s not a life for young people like me, or people with illnesses. They should have a place to go”!

Carly is spot on. People should have a place to go to call home, and all of us can help make that happen

    Hi from Scotland..
    What kind of help does America have in place to help homeless and addiction?
    At 17yrs old there has to be some sort of responsibility to the Goverment of America..

    Is it easier for single people than families to get help?.

    Some kind of homeless shelter should be put in place surely

    I have been homeless almost ten years. I was hit by a drunk driver and now I am stuck on disability and I have brain damage and major seizure. I have never done drugs or drank. I know how hard it is, bless you for taking the steps to get your cleaned up. Never give up on yourself and never give-up on your future.
