Hello my name is Phillip Wallace. I am 19 years old and work for the Young Women’s Project (YWP). Today in DC, a high percentage of teens and young adults have problems with housing. Some may not know how to prepare for housing, others go though abuse and neglect within homes. Many teens move place to place and lack stable housing.

Have you ever been forced to go to a school that you didn’t want to just because it was easier for the adults making decisions in your life? Well I have. Last year I had to battle to stay in the school that was in my best interest, it worked out in the end but it was a battle.
