Kids on the Streets

Do you have fond memories of how you grew up? Was your home safe, sound and warm?

We’re approaching another winter where our homeless children are facing months of not knowing where they will end up sleeping for the night or where their next meal is going to come from.

As an adult, you would not be able to manage this kind of lifestyle. Yet we have a tendency to ignore this major problem when it’s children who have no means of taking care of themselves.

The problem is escalating by alarming rates. In 1970 90% of  all children in the United States graduated high school. Today, merely 40 years later it is only 60%. That’s 15 million children who do not graduate.

Only 50% of those children will live beyond 35 years old.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you were one of those children? We can do something about this.

The Ultimate Business University is just one of many ways we can begin to make a difference.

What ideas do you have? Do you know of anyone who has the time and energy to start working to help these children?

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
