3,000 young people ages 14 to 24 will experience homelessness in Columbus in 2021.
Another 4,000 will be at risk of homelessness, unsure of where they will sleep on any given night.
At Huckleberry House, a brighter future starts at our front door.
From the 96 new apartments opened since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to the 4,618 nights of shelter provided in our crisis shelter last year, we are meeting the needs of homeless and unstably housed youth ages 12 to 24. With a 90% success rate in our Transitional Living Program, we are addressing the long-term self-sufficiency of young people and keeping them out of the adult homeless system. Proceeds of the SLEEP OUT! benefit the proven programs of Huckleberry House.
You can help raise awareness and much-need funds. Donate or sign up to sleep out to become part of the solution.
