SERVICE

2018-2019 Service Focus: Youth Homelessness

During the 2018-2019 school year, NHS will learn about the systemic and root causes of youth homelessness, and then lead the MSHS school community in service to youth experiencing homelessness in Manitou Springs, the greater Colorado Springs community, and internationally. We hope to partner with Partners for Healthy Choices in MSSD14, Urban Peak in Colorado Springs, Blackbird Outreach, Marion House, GSTA, Key Club, STUCO, and others to bring more awareness about the community of young people experiencing homelessness.


If you or your organization has ways to partner with us in this endeavor, please contact Amanda Kerrigan at akerrigan@mssd14.org.
