This project focuses on adolescent teenagers who are homeless in America and provides a program that will help them develop life skills such as relationships and education. Adolescent teens in America try to learn new skills as part of the maturing process. Unfortunately, there are homeless adolescents in America who have learned more survival skills than most adults will ever learn. Homeless adolescents need a place to go that lets them be children, learn basic tasks, and develop healthy relationships.

The focus of this project is to address the inadequacies that homeless adolescents deal with today and to give them the life skills necessary to become productive members of society. The goal of this project is to help the homeless adolescents that join the program to find the resources necessary to prevent them from staying in their current status. The program will help them learn to build relationships and gain life skills that will help them in the future.
