We have 17 chapters in 10 states across the U.S., including the District of Columbia.  Our primary goal is to establish and build relationships with runaway, homeless and street-dependent youth.  Through supportive relationships with caring adults, we help youth adjust to safe and appropriate living arrangements while becoming independent, self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
