We are guided by the Youth Action Board of San Antonio (#YABSA) which strives for youth to be at the center of decision making. Our movement to house all youth is established in our coordinated community plan, WE SAY.
Kameron is the president of YAB. He entered the foster care system as a young child and was adopted by his foster mother who lived in rural Texas. Seeking opportunity and a better life, Kameron returned to San Antonio in 2018. But life didn’t go as planned. A series of traumatic events left him emotionally scarred. Without a support network or place to call home, Kameron experienced homelessness for over a year. He was introduced to Thrive at Haven for Hope. During this time, he met and formed lifelong friendships with other youth experiencing homelessness. Kameron’s experience was eye-opening and led to his involvement with YHDP and YAB. He is a fierce advocate for improving the homeless system by listening to those with lived experiences. He hopes the YHDP program reduces barriers to better serve homeless youth.
By joining the Movement to House All Youth, you are committing to collaborating with stakeholders and youth who have experienced homelessness to find long-term solutions to safely house all youth and young adults.
