Youth are homeless for three reasons: Home doesn't exist, home isn't safe or home isn't supportive. On any given night, 1,000 kids and young adults are along on King County's streets.
Together we made a difference with United Way of King County, the Seattle Mariners and Bonneville Seattle at the first annual All-Star Softball Classic for Homeless Youth, presented by Microsoft.
On June 15th, 2013, 710 ESPN Seattle's Bob Stelton, KIRO Radio's Don O'Neill, SuperSonic Gary Payton, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and other big names joined them at Safeco Field to help fight youth homelessness. United Way's All-Star Softball Classic for Homeless Youth made history by bringing thousands of people together to end youth homelessness.
Congrats to Team Dan, who won 18-17! But the biggest stat of the day? The event helped raise $1.2 million for homeless youth!
