Louisville agencies working together to house city's homeless population

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As the snow moves in, local organizations are teaming up to end youth homelessness in Louisville. 

More than 50 agencies have come together to offer places to stay and help finding jobs for those in need. 

The Coalition for the Homeless says more than 400 young adults between ages 18 and 24 were living in shelters or on the streets. Another 450 youth below the age of 18 were served by the YMCA Safe Place Services.

City leaders say enough is enough, and the city needs to work together to make a difference. 

"They need to be supported, and they need to come to places like this, know that we support them as a community, know that we support them as a group of agencies and that we will try to help them live better lives," said Eric Frielander with Louisville Metro Community Services.

The Coalition for the Homeless says you don't have to be part of a group to help. You just need to reach out to the people needing it.
