The Teen Project

At risk homeless and sex trafficked young women between the ages of 18 and 25 may get drug treatment, education and housing through the non-profit The Teen Project. Founder, technology executive Lauri Burns had a troubled childhood that involved beatings and ended up being in foster care.

Burns says 65 percent of women who had been in foster care end up homeless.

Her program provides everything to help get women back on track with a safe place to live, education and job training.

She’s the guest on our public affairs show “Collage,” which airs this evening at seven. “Collage” may also be heard anytime on-line at
