The Homestretch follows three youths experiencing homelessness as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a better future for themselves. Each of these resilient teenagers works to complete his or her education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age. This youth action guide empowers young people to address the challenge of youth homelessness in their own communities. Whether you're an individual who feels called to action regarding the issue of youth homelessness or you're part of a school- or community-based organization, this guide will equip you with the tools you need to be an agent of change.
