Good News: Homeless Teen Graduates Celebrated

 

Twenty-two homeless teen graduates have overcome the odds and were honored at the annual Outreach, Inc. Graduation Celebration BBQ over the weekend. National studies reveal as many as “75 percent of homeless or runaway youth have dropped out or will drop out of school.” These youth are breaking the trend, thanks in part to Outreach’s G.O.A.L. (Graduation, Occupation, Address, Lifestyle) program and GED program. Shine.FM listeners contributed gift cards and notes of encouragement for graduates, sending them off in style.  See pictures here!
