CBS46 reports, there has been a rapid spike in gay youth homelessness in metro Atlanta during the past five years due primarily to family disapproval and rejection.
Lost n Found, a shelter and thrift store on Chantilly Drive in Atlanta, has found themselves a lot busier than normal lately.
The shelter has helped youth like Chance Crafton, who came to the shelter for help, a few months ago after his mother kicked him out on the street.
“I found hope and I found a reason to continue on and think about my future,” Crafton said.
The facility’s goal is to tackle the growing problem of homelessness and help victims in the process.
