Host Stephen Henderson connects with Detroit Phoenix Center Founder Courtney Smith to learn about a new campaign the organization is launching to help homeless and transient youth in the metro Detroit region. The organization, which provides support and resources to youth currently experiencing or transitioning out of homelessness, hosts a “One Night Without a Bed” campaign designed to raise awareness, and monetary and in-kind basic survival donations, for homeless youth.
The “One Night Without a Bed” campaign challenges participants to make themselves uncomfortable and to spend one night sleeping anywhere else but a bed — on the couch, in a tent or car, or on the floor — in solidarity with the nearly 4.2 million youth who experience homelessness each year in the United States. The center’s fundraising campaign ends Dec. 31, 2021.
