Scotty has been homeless in Denver since he was 13 years old. He’s 23 now and still homeless, and says he’s kind of gotten used to being on the streets.

At 13, Scotty’s mother kicked him out into the streets. He survived with the support of older homeless kids in the downtown area of Denver.  I cannot even imagine what goes through a child’s mind when they forced into homelessness by being thrown away.

Sadly, a huge percentage of homeless kids are never even reported as missing!

Very special thanks to Sox Place.

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.
