Youth HEALers Stand Up! is a group of 13-24 year olds who are fighting to put a end to youth homelessness in Philadelphia and beyond. The people involved with this group have experienced homelessness or housing insecurity and want to make it so that future generations don't have to go through the same struggle. The HEALers do this by educating young people, professionals, decision makers on what youth homelessness looks like, bringing awareness in our communities to the situation, and empowering other youth to use their voice and take real action to put a end to youth homelessness.
HEALers stands for Housing, Education, Action, and Leadership
