Every night in Kansas City, 2,000 teens have no home to go to. They’re sleeping on the street ~ in their car ~ on someone’s couch ~ or in a motel. Wherever they are … it’s not home.
In November, Synergy sponsors an event called One Homeless Night that gives young people a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of their homeless peers for one night while also providing critical help through programs at Synergy Services.
We sponsor this event because we believe it’s important to understand the plight of a homeless teen and then to do something about it. Your gift is supporting our work with homeless teens. We have a Street Outreach Team who drives around at night looking for homeless teens, and offering them warmth, food, clothes, and someone to talk to. We have Synergy House – a dorm-like building where teens can stay for a bit to get back on their feet. We have the Youth Resiliency Center – an incredible building where teens can eat a meal, shower, wash their clothes and rest.
We wouldn’t have any of this without you. Thank you so much for your support of Synergy Services; for understanding the plight of a homeless teen; and for doing something about it.
