LifeWorks and Texas Appleseed have partnered to produce a month-long campaign to help raise awareness about the numbers of youth experiencing homelessness in the state of Texas.
The We Do Exist (#WeDoExist) campaign aims to shine a light on the issue of youth homelessness and addresses the complexities surrounding the issue, including aging out of foster care, gaps in provided services and ways to increase school-based resources to help youth experiencing homelessness so that they don’t fall behind in their education.
The campaign also offers tangible ways for members of the Austin community to get involved to help end youth homelessness, such as the means to inform and petition the Texas legislature. Volunteer opportunities will be featured in the near future.
