Burrowes street youth haven

“I was hungry and living on the street and didn’t want to do it anymore. But I didn’t want to go home either. When I went
to the Youth Haven, I felt safe and had a place to sleep. The counselors there were easy to talk to and they helped me
figure things out.”

Overview
