We are an advocacy, education, and outreach organization that raises awareness of the homeless youth epidemic in America. We inspire and empower the public through positive personal, local, and national activism. We mentor and empower youth to advocate for themselves and their community; while encouraging positive social change through community awareness training and community action. We celebrate cultural diversity by building positive bridges and mutual mentorship between communities.
We envision a harmonious world where respectful and compassionate communities work with one another, celebrating the authenticity and diversity of our cultures, strengthening the integrity of our collective society, learning new ways of living without fear, resolving any issues that cause imbalance to the collective, and establishing justice and full equality for all.
OSA is a national advocacy, education, and outreach organization that raises awareness of homeless youth. All youth deserve to be protected, nurtured, and supported - and to live in a safe environment where they can reach their full potential. We have a responsibility to care for these youth, to realize what is happening to them, to see who they are, and to celebrate their courage and authenticity." - Chloe Noble
