COLUMBUS (WCMH) – A group of local leaders is working to raise awareness about youth homelessness.
Leadership Columbus‘ Community Impact Project Team from the Class of 2019 is helping organize the efforts. One of the organizations they are working with is Star House which is dedicated to helping people ages 14-24 dealing with homelessness.
“It gives me a lot of hope that Columbus is becoming more aware of this need that has been hidden for so long,” said Ann Bischoff, Star House CEO.
According to Bischoff, there are about 3,000 people ages 14-24 in central Ohio who are homeless. Jamaka Garrett is one of those people.
