“Un adolescente sin hogar no se parece a lo que probablemente te imagines como un adolescente sin hogar”, explica John Ducoff, director ejecutivo de Covenant House Pennsylvania. “Los adolescentes y los niños se preocupan mucho por las apariencias y por cómo son percibidos. Por esta razón, se vuelven una comunidad invisible, y nuestra misión es sacarlos de la sombra”.

“A homeless teen isn’t what you probably think a homeless teen looks like,”John Ducoff, the Executive Director of Covenant House Pennsylvania, explains.“Teens and kids care too much about keeping up with appearances and how they’re perceived. For that reason, they remain an invisible community, and our mission is to bring them out of the shadows.”
