'Cool Water' Helps Homeless Teens Bounce Back

Ad Feedback

A mentoring program in Spokane, Wash., is helping homeless teens by providing them with jobs.
  
The non-profit group Cup of Cool Water has been providing food and shelter to homeless teens for the past 14 years.
    
But now, it has added a bicycle repair shop to do even more.
    
Shop manager of Cool Water Bikes Noah Sutherland said they are hiring teens to provide job skills and get their lives back on track.

"It's a chance to be one-on-one to talk about life and talk about God and what's going on," Sutherland said. "The statistics that we've got are anywhere between 400 and 1,400 (homeless teens) on the street at any given time."

Besides providing a safe place for the homeless kids to hang out, they can also get food, showers, haircuts and clothing.
