Kevin

Featured Video Play Icon

Kevin is a homeless youth living in a Chicago youth shelter. Kevin’s mother kicked him out when he was 15 years old, and he spent the next few years couch surfing. At 17, Kevin went and moved in with his dad, where he says they both put a lot of their feelings in a bottle. When that relationship exploded, Kevin found himself back out in the streets.

Kevin shares a candid story of sleeping outside and the realities of being a homeless youth.

When I asked Kevin what his future was like, he responded that he had been in so many places the last 3 years – that he didn’t know, but at 18 Kevin is a young man with a world of experience. You only have to listen to him for a short time to know he’s on a good path now, and if he stays the course, Kevin will do just fine.
