Country singer/songwriter Jimmy Wayne recounts his journey trekking across America to raise awareness for homeless youth and his charity Project Meet Me Halfway. A foster child himself, Wayne speaks from his heart about miracles and giving back. His story is the story of countless teens searching for a home, food, a kind word, and a chance at life. His blog is one of the reasons why we started The Comet – a chance for artists to speak directly to fans about what matters most to them.
We have our own teen & younger generation homeless problem in Savannah!
It isn’t talked about much, the system isn’t there to handle this population of homeless kids. They are out on the streets for a variety of reasons. They are Savannah’s youth as well as the traveling youth of our country, who wander between towns & cities trying to exist.
For whatever the reason they are homeless we need to provide services to them & for them as well.
Keep this in mind when you see a young person on the streets – it’s happening early in their lives – many times it’s a family issue.
We are seeing this in Savannah as well & the issues will be targeted soon!
