For a quarter of a century I've worked with homeless families, teens and adults, realizing that they have a slippery upward slope to climb.
Part of the problem, I've found by talking to countless people--legislators, policy wonks, ordinary folk--is lack of awareness. So, in true Nilan fashion, I set out to do whatever I can do to change that.
HEAR US Inc. is my nonprofit that strives to give voice and visibility to homeless children and youth. It's been an amazing journey!
