Celene’s Second Story

Celene’s life changed forever when she moved away from home to live with her father who she didn’t know very well. After Celene’s anxieties became all-consuming she came to stay with Second Story for Teens in Crisis.



Jimena is a young mother, working hard to provide for her two children. In many ways her life is what she hoped it would be, but it wasn’t always like that. Jimena experienced homelessness for nearly five years and her story gives us an important look at what it’s like to be homeless as a young person.
