Natasha Yeung, the youth program coordinator at the Coalition for the Homeless, spoke about the support they receive from Disney.

“The youth overcome their fears, doubts, and insecurities, allowing them to live with purpose, passion and hopefully ending generational homelessness,” she said. “Disney’s continued support helps make these goals a reality; our program would not be what it is without them.”
