Lighthouse Foundation’s CEO, Dr Eamonn McCarthy, sat down with Future Generation for a Q&A recently where he discussed the evolving nature of youth homelessness, the history of Lighthouse Foundation and the importance of community-wide collaboration in addressing the issue.
“I’d define homelessness as lacking the requirements, autonomy and space needed to live a full and complete life. For example, a child who’s sleeping on a friend’s couch, who’s not really entitled to bring friends over to hang out in the family room, would fit that definition.”
-Dr Eamonn McCarthy, CEO, Lighthouse Foundation
