Enterprise Update

This is what I’ve done for my enterprise story about Hosea Youth Services. So far, I have interviewed Ken Harvey, Executive Director of HYS; Amanda Alaniz, former homeless youth/current volunteer at HYS; and Britni D’Eliso and Alec Woodward, Urban Missionaries at HYS who focus on the spiritual side of helping the youth.

In addition, I went to the HYS Drop-in Center last Wednesday, where they serve food, provide laundry and shower services, and also provide free clothes and shoes. The Drop-in Center is located in the Evangelical Church on 8th Ave. and Monroe St. in the Jefferson

Westside Neighbors. Here, I looked around, introduced myself, and took some pictures. This is where I met and interviewed Alaniz, D’Eliso, and Woodward. I interviewed Harvey before I went to the Drop-in Center, and then we drove over and he showed me around before I talked to the other people I interviewed.

I would still like to interview Mike Langley, Drop-in Center director at HYS. He was busy when I emailed him and when I went to the Drop-in Center, but I am hoping to talk to him soon. I will also go back to the Drop-in Center to take more pictures and talk to more youth. Also, in the HYS annual newsletter that Harvey gave me a young man named Chris is mentioned. He is one of the many success stories and I would like to talk to him about how HYS helped him get to where he is.

Other than personal emails and phone numbers, all the contact information that I have right now is on the HYS website.
