Why We Do It

Behind the face of every homeless young person is a story of young human resilience – one often filled with trauma, heartbreak, and many more challenges than many of us face in a lifetime.

The youth we serve are not simply runaway kids - they are young individuals needing to feel safe, loved, and encouraged through guidance & hope. 

At KIC-IT we want to be a safe place for any youth experiencing homelessness.
