Homeless Youth Awareness MOnth 2018
This November, Cocoon House is recognizing Homeless Youth Awareness Month, a nationwide month of action where people draw attention to youth homelessness. Staff and volunteers from Cocoon House will spend the month holding educational, community service, fundraising, and advocacy events to address the youth homelessness.
The mission of Cocoon House is to empower young people, families, and the community to break the cycle of homelessness through outreach, housing and prevention. This mission supports the belief that every young person deserves a home and the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

We want everyone in our community to be educated about homeless youth and their families. Together we can break the cycle of homelessness. We have prepared a toolkit with information and events you can share to raise awareness among your community. Download the toolkit here: TOOLKIT
Follow along on Social Media
We will be sharing information, statistics and stories about homelessness and the young people and families we serve throughout the entire month of November. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn using #HYAM and #CocoonHouse to see all of the stories, and be sure to share our updates all month long.
