Mike

For young adults, it’s all about name brand clothing, but most homeless youth cannot afford the cost or don’t have the ‘closet space’! That doesn’t stop Mike from rock’n homelessness in style.

Mike is 20 years old and has been street homeless for the last two years. Mike started couch surfing, but living at the mercy of other people can be challenging, and Mike ended up sleeping outside.

I get the strong feeling homelessness is not in Mike’s future. Even while on the streets he’s finishing up his GED and looking at college. Mike is all about style and he even designed a dress for a charity event.

Special thanks to Urban Peak.

This Invisible People road trip is made possible by  Sevenly and Virgin Mobile USA, who are partnering to end youth homelessness through Virgin Mobile USA’s initiative, RE*Generation. For more information please click here.
