Amber and Earl

Featured Video Play Icon

Amber and Earl are homeless living on the streets. Today they happened to be traveling through Denver, Colorado, which is where we met.

Amber has been homeless for 4 years now, ever since the day she turned 18. Earl says his first taste of homelessness was at 16. But that he was “straight up” homeless by 17.

Most of us walk by kids that look like Amber and Earl. But they are real people just like you and me. Most street kids were deprived of a normal family life. Most escape with drugs. The streets become home. It is very sad.
