Homeless Teens Have Some Shelter


Every night dozens of homeless teens in Central Oregon try to find a warm place to sleep. Some end up sleeping in alleys, doorways and even garbage bins. Tim Bach, the co-founder of ICON City, used to be a homeless himself. Now he's reaching out to homeless teens in Central Oregon. Bach says just the other night they took care of about a dozen kids on a very cold night. When the shelters are full, teens get mummy bags and try to find a warm dry place to sleep. Recently, it was a close call for a couple of kids who camped out in a garbage bin.  "Had a couple of kids the other day.   The kids were in a garbage bin and the truck came in the morning and lifted them up and dumped both of them in the back of the truck and just saw that happen and those kids had to kick and scream to get some help and that guy took the day off.  He was just shook (up), so I went to pick those kids up."  Bach was a guest on KBNDs Your Town Monday.
