Cynthia is going to school. She has a job. But what Cynthia doesn’t have, is a home.  At only 19 years old, Cynthia has been couch surfing for the last three years.

Her mom and dad just got up and left, which is sadly very common. I have heard several stories of parents leaving without telling their children. Cynthia shares about the stress of never knowing when a family member will say it’s time to leave. She says it’s happened to her in the middle of the night.

Cynthia is also a very brave young woman. Today she spoke at a meeting for congressional staffers about the need to support the Homeless Children Youth Act.
