Facebook COO & Author Sheryl Sandberg Visits Lighthouse Sheakley Center
Sheryl Sandberg –
Over 500,000 Americans are homeless – and a third of them are under 25 years old.
Today I visited the Sheakley Center for Youth in Cincinnati, an emergency shelter that helps homeless youth find permanent housing and rebuild their lives. Thousands of young people enter their doors each year. Some are teens who have aged out of foster care and have nowhere to go.

The Sheakley Center gives them a safe place to go during some of the darkest moments of their lives.
