FULTON, NY – Amy Baldwin and Dan Sokal of OCOÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Youth Emergency Services Program (YES!) place paper backpacks at the new boat launch, Indian Point, in Fulton.
In recognition of National Runaway Prevention Month, and to raise awareness of homelessness in Oswego County, the program has set up a display that includes a paper backpack to represent each call that the program received to its 24-hour hotline during the past year.
The display also features a number of display boards with statistics and information on homelessness in Oswego County and how community members can help address the issue of homelessness by becoming a host home.
