Tyler was introduced to us via YesOmaha. He let us know he left home because of problems with his father. When he first left home he slept in unlocked public spaces. Tyler took us to downtown Omaha to the doorways and alleys where he would go sleep at night. YesOmaha in addition to providing shelter makes meals at their outreach center, which is open in the afternoons until early evening. It is an essential service which functions as a second home for many youths in need.
