It may surprise you to know that every year there are 20 to 30 homeless students in the Sitka School District. But soon, these students will have a place to live and it could be in your home.
Youth Advocates of Sitka was recently awarded a three-year federal Transitional Living Program (TLP) grant aimed at combating homelessness among Sitka youth by housing them with volunteers. YAS Executive Director Charlie Woodcock spoke on the Morning Interview to ask Sitkans to step forward and open their homes to youth in need.
