If you don't know, here is something to hurt the heart to help the hearts of others. 1 in 3 homeless adults in the United States is a veteran. That's more than 135,000 veterans living on the streets or in shelters on any given day. Another 1.5 million other veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions.
At The Bradley Reid Corporation, we are trying to change the lives of veterans by providing men and women across North Carolina and the United States with clean, comfortable, and sober living apartments, which serve as stepping-stones to independent living.
The Bradley Reid Corp is charged with assessing the needs for people unsupported in North Carolina. Sadly we found that children are apart of these very people we are talking about. It's not always easy to identify youth on the streets through typical counts of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness. Homeless youth are less likely to spend time in the same places as homeless people who are in an older age range. They are often less willing to disclose that they're experiencing homelessness or may not even identify as homeless. They also may work harder to try to blend in with peers who aren't homeless. to a child thier thinking is to blend in and not ask for help. Pride will kill you if not channel to the right place.
