Many of you have inquired about the teens featured on "20/20" last week. Below are updates on how to help George, Dakota, Rebekah and June from the organizations that are working with them and other teens.
Larkin Street Youth Services for George
George is doing well and has a safe home in one of Larkin Street Youth Services' private transitional living programs. We are sharing any notes of well wishes with George so if you would like to share a note, please mail to Larkin Street Youth Services. If you would like to learn more about how George and other homeless youth are supported by Larkin Street, click here and visit the website.
You can give to Larkin Street directly to help all the 3,400 youth we serve each year and it would be a tax deductible donation. Click here to make the donation.
Or if you want to provide funds to George, you give online or send in a check and indicate it is for George. This is not tax deductible.
Send checks made out to Larkin Street Youth Services (indicate in the memo if they want it to go to George -- not tax deductible -- otherwise it will go to helping all youth at Larkin Street.)
Checks should be sent to:
