"Yeah, the whining's kinda cute but..."

In all seriousness, homeless youths are a problem in this community, and what with the onset of the winter, a cause well worth considering:
"School district officials estimate more than 250 homeless students attend schools in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, a number that does not include recent flood victims from rural Alaska, preschoolers or children at private or alternative schools. Last year, the district estimates it worked with approximately 530 homeless students." (link)
Fairbanks Counseling and Adoption’s Street Outreach and Advocacy program just had another candlelight vigil to raise awareness of this issue, follow the linkage for more contact info on what you can do.
