The teen years are tough enough without also having to worry about where you'll sleep next. 

But teen homelessness is a fact of life in many communities.  And a recently-formed group in Redding seeks to come up with some solutions. 

Aaron Hayes of Catalyst Mentoring has some experience with homeless teens; he is a member of the new group.  He joins us to talk about what he's seen and what options might be presented.
