November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, and a local organization is making sure New Yorkers have a helping hand when they need one.
The Safe Horizon nonprofit Streetwork Project has been connecting homeless people with resources for nearly 40 years. Drop-in centers available on the Lower East Side and Harlem provide daily meals, medical care, mental health services and even legal help.
"We're managing a lot of things but we're also very human and so you know when we're hearing the stories of the clients and things like that you have to have a lot of it because you hear a lot of it and your managing, but you also have to make sure that you're being compassionate at the same time," said senior director Tamara Amoah-Awuah.
