Rescuing the Perishing | YWAM Houston

By Tyler Tom on 4 Jun 2021

The Battle over homelessness, broken families, and injustice in Urban America.

"Oh my gosh, THESE are the prostitutes! I didn't even recognize them!" 

"I had this revelation one day as I was listening to the kids at our Street Church share their stories. I thought they looked somewhat typical. Just young people running around with backpacks on their backs, except most of them were homeless. We'd see drag queens standing on the street corners in stilettos and short skirts, but the street kids sure didn't fit the stereotype of a prostitute." - Kim Dale
