Kids With Nowhere To Go

“We used to have a recreational center, and after the kids would get off of school the police officers would watch over the children. They don’t have it anymore. They shut it down. You notice there are more kids on the street, more kids who don’t have anywhere else to go. If you open the recreation centers up right after school, the parents might still be able to work. That’s what I did until my mother got off work. My mom couldn’t afford camps so I had to do everything that was free. They need to bring back way more programs for the youth.”
