This renovation is part of the 20-year legacy between the organization and Disney.

Natasha Yeung, the youth program coordinator at the Coalition for the Homeless, said their program has helped empower young people to reach their potential in a family environment.

“The youth overcome their fears, doubts and insecurities, allowing them to live with purpose, passion and hopefully ending generational homelessness,” she said. “Disney’s continued support helps make these goals a reality; our program would not be what it is without them.”
