      I think you have a very interesting topic. This is a reality that no one really talks about. Homelessness alone is a problem in Chicago and it’s sad to hear students are also being affected. Having to deal with school work and after school activities is had enough we should help students in these situations so they’re sole focus is making a better future for themselves regardless of their conditions. I’d be interested in hearing your ideas on how to help with this problem.

    • Hey Jaqueline, this post is heartbreaking but interesting. I never knew the amount of teens that are homeless in Chicago. I love how you took the time to find this information and share in with us. Everything you said in this post stood out to me. I will look forward to seeing your future posts.
