HOUSTON – Moms are always going above and beyond. From the time we’re born, they spend most of their time taking care of us. But it takes a very special kind of mother to brave the streets of Houston.

At Covenant House Texas, a non-profit crisis shelter, 25 women slept outside to raise money and awareness for homeless teenage moms and youth.

On average — there are 2 million homeless kids in the U.S.

And shockingly, right here in Houston and Harris county — there are more than 2,400 homeless young people.

But moms like these are working to change that statistic.

Because while a couple bucks may help someone who’s down and out — walking a mile in their shoes is priceless.
