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
