Statistically, young students who experience homelessness do not graduate high school; many drop out before reaching 12th grade. Thanks to Safe In My Brothers Arms (S.I.M.B.A.) and All Sisters Evolving Together (A.S.E.T.), high school students living in homeless shelters in New York City are given career and college resources to put them on a pathway to get out of homelessness and create better lives for themselves. The program started with 35 young men in S.I.M.B.A. and has grown to include A.S.E.T. since sisters wanted a female version of what their brothers received. The program provides a safe space with meaningful resources for people to develop relationships and expose them to the  opportunities that are available.
