New Video: Shane Burroughs


NCFY's new video series features seven youth workers from around the country, each sharing a time when they made a big difference in a young person's life.

Shane Burroughs, from Valley Youth House in Allentown, PA, told the story of a teen mother who achieved newfound stability after staying at his organization's rapid re-housing program, which finds stable homes for homeless youth as quickly as possible.

The "When Did You Make the Biggest Difference in a Young Person's Life?" video series was shot in Portland, OR, during the 2011 National Runaway and Homeless Youth Family and Youth Services Bureau Grantee Conference in November. A complementary series titled "What's Your Most Meaningful Relationship?" features formerly homeless young people talking about the most essential people in their lives.
