Our Youth

There are over 600 youth in the Houston area sleeping on the streets each night.

Most people assume that homeless kids are runaways who don’t want to follow the rules at home or juvenile delinquents who are in trouble. The youth who we support are kids who’ve had to remove themselves from their living situation in order to survive. They are trying to change their lives because they want to live and thrive.

When a child is sleeping in a car, an abandoned building, a dumpster or under a bridge because it is a safer place than home, there is major cause for concern

Background

Ending the Cycle of Youth Homelessness

The Pink Giraffe House believes that there is no good reason for a child to be denied the opportunity of a safe home environment. They are all entitled to regular meals, clean clothes, a place to take a hot shower, and the support of caring adults.
