Dennis Molino is a 20 year old living in Seattle, WA. After losing his parents to addiction and violence, he bounced around the foster care system before being "aged out" when he turned 18. As recently as a month ago, Molino was living on the streets, sleeping in cars, on couches, and anywhere else he could find warmth and shelter. Thanks to help from the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation, he is now living at their local youth home, where he participates in educational and employment workshops. Molino has a job at a local fast-food restaurant, and plans to get his G.E.D. and pursue a future in culinary arts.
There are more homeless today than at any other time in history. 1.3 million of them are youth.
