The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless asks folks to send a letter to Gov. Blagojevich requesting $15 million in his 2009 budget for homeless youths. This amount would boost youth housing programs by $5 million, transitional job pilot programs by $2 million, and increase by $8 million available funding for school districts to educate homeless children.
