As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday season, our thoughts turn to those less fortunate than ourselves. This includes millions of young people who are lacking safe places to call home. Today, the first day of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month and National Runaway Prevention Month, we are delighted to provide you an opportunity to help make a difference.

The National Network for Youth is championing a wonderful piece of legislation to prevent and end youth homelessness: the Place to Call Home Act. Please tell your elected officials that every young American needs a roof over their heads and a place to call home. We hope you will take this opportunity to contact your elected officials and ask for their support on this important bill, by clicking the link below.

Up to three million youth in the United States lack safe places to live. The Place to Call Home Act will create the conditions, structures and supports necessary to ensure permanency for the Nation's unaccompanied youth.

Thanks, as always, for all that you do!

--Thaddeus, David and the YPAC team

P.S. Please pass this email on to friends and colleagues who may be supportive!
