Since our last update, I have done three more interviews at the Hosea Youth Services Thrift Store. I talked to a volunteer at the store, Jerome Jones, who is also a volunteer at
the Drop-in Center. I talked to him about his involvement with HYS and what exactly the thrift store does. I also talked to two customers, Megan Jacob and Zelman Cramer. I went around and took pictures of the store, and I also went upstairs to take pictures where they conduct sewing lessons in an attempt to arm homeless youth with basic skills to help them get jobs.
I would still like to go back to the Drop-in Center
next week and talk to more youth. I would also like to talk to surrounding churches and businesses in the Jefferson Westside Neighbors to see how HYS might be helping in the area.
