Friendship Shelter’s Henderson House apartments in San Clemente reopened its doors last month to 14 homeless youth aged 18-25, who will all have access to supportive services that help ensure a successful living arrangement.

“We’re thrilled to welcome 14 young people to their new home where they can focus on their futures,” Dawn Price, executive director of the Laguna Beach-based organization, said in a statement.

“I used to cry myself to sleep every night because I had no hope for the future. Now I’m in school, and I’m making the impossible possible,” says a statement from one resident, who was not further identified.
