The Storefront (photo page click here)
This team was able to work with The Storefront while in San Diego. As the only emergency homeless shelter for youth ages 12-17, The Storefront provides a unique and extremely positive service to the community. Not only does it provide shelter to homeless teens, it actively helps them stay off the streets. As a result of The Storefront programs and staff, many youth change the direction of their lives in a positive way as they are placed in long term safe environments. The team focused their time at The Storefront by providing activities for the youth.
