MYS Participates in CEO Sleepout
This morning, MYS staff attended the CEO Sleepout press conference. In its fifth year, this event aims to raise $200,000 to create employment opportunities for the homeless and to start the conversation and bring awareness to this important cause.
We had the opportunity to meet many of the CEO's who are participating this year which will include our very own CEO, Erma Chapman.
During the press conference, we also heard from Jamie Hogaboam. Jamie shared his story about being homeless and struggling with mental health issues - his story was powerful that really challenged society's perception of the homeless population.
