‘Almost Home’ Profiles Homeless Young People
The new book “Almost Home” profiles the lives of six young people who experienced homelessness and found help and a path toward a brighter future through Covenant House, a national network of shelters for homeless teens.
The book was written by the President of Covenant House, Kevin Ryan and a former New York Times reporter, Tina Kelly, who is also a past volunteer at one of the shelters. The first profile in the book is of an Alaskan, a young man named Paulie. Tina Kelly says they were impressed by his graciousness and how he gave back to the community after a very tough start to life.
