Founded in 2012 by Siena & Savannah Prenger.When the duo learned that Nevada had one of the highest homeless teen populations in the country, they knew they had to do something to bring awareness to this mostly invisible issue and to help this demographic who were mostly falling through the cracks. They began with a city wide drive to collect urgently needed items to help these teens survive the elements, and to thrive in school. Their efforts drew massive media attention, legislator outreach, corporate supporters and teen volunteers who wanted to get involved. During THT's infancy relationships were fostered with school registrars, shelter directors, social workers, first responders and community leaders. These relationships continue to help THT identify teens in need and alerts them when a crisis is at hand. Over the last four years THT has grown into other states and strives to become a nationwide movement offering peer to peer support across the country. THT is now a nationally recognized 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, making your contributions tax deductible.
