Leadership Columbus participants put a face to an unseen population with their new campaign.
Twenty-two-year-old Kale, a guest at Star House in the Milo-Grogan neighborhood, looks like an average college student. Wearing one large hoop earring, a Batman T-shirt and baggy, paint-splattered pants, she smiles as she talks about yoga, roller-skating and the kindness of strangers. One day, she confides, she’d like to become a professional artist. But Kale isn’t a college student. She spends most nights trying to avoid falling asleep outside.
