Homeless teens not forgotten

Posted: December 26, 2013 - 3:34pm

As a liaison for KPBSD’s Students in Transition Program, I am so impressed by the community’s outpouring of support. Many people have reached out this holiday season to offer assistance for the Students in Transition Program.  

It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that there is support available for our students that are experiencing homelessness on the Kenai Peninsula. I would like to take a moment and thank Janet O’Rourke, Monica Sallee and Jacob Groff for organizing the second annual fill a stocking event for our youth in transition. The community donated funds and time, filling stockings to make this event possible. McNeil Canyon Elementary also generously collected and donated gifts for the program as well as the Homer Methodist Church. Finally, Share the Spirit is an amazing organization to do all that they do, not just during the holiday season but year round. Much thanks and gratitude to them and to all of you.

The Students in Transition Program is for students and families who lack a stable, adequate, and permanent place to sleep at night. Please call 226-1890 for more information.
