The Hope for Living (HFL) Project stands for social equality. We address the prevalence and barriers of youth homelessness through a critical race theory lens.
 

About Us

The Hope for Living Project (HFL) is mainly a nonprofit organization - & student-run club at Washtenaw International High School. We work to educate ourselves and the community about the challenges and stigma around youth homelessness. A large part of our work is also understanding the racial implication within youth homelessness. We have received the Princeton Prize in Race Relations award, had a Michigan state representative and local press attend our local-level panel, and our virtual concert fundraiser provided direct aid and hybrid programming to 590 homeless youth during the midst of the pandemic!
