Our guest this evening is Michael Coffey, CEO of an Australian organization called Yfoundations. Yfoundations has sought to represent the needs of young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness and those services who support them in Australia. Michael has been in the United States for the past couple of weeks learning about how our country deals with youth homelessness. Michael interviews Pat O’Brien for the first 35 minutes of this program about the work You Gotta Believe does here in the US and then Pat interviews Michael about the work he is doing with YFoundations in Australia. This is a very interesting discussion on Youth Homeless and its causes and cures.
