What is your why? Why do you work in social services? Why did you drop by our page? Why are you still reading this? The inspiration for each person is different and personal, but in the end it boils down to the numbers.
1.7 million - the number of homeless youth in the United States
5,000 - the number of homeless youth that die each year due to assault, illness or suicide
683,000 - number of children abused and neglected annually
5 -number of children that DIE EACH DAY from abuse and neglect
67.6% - the recidivism rate for juvenile offenders without intervention
670,000 - the number of children that spent time in U.S. foster care
The WHY is impact.
