Homeless teens receive apartment makeover

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A metro organization is holding an apartment makeover competition to help homeless teen girls.

Nearly half of homeless teens in Kansas City leave home because of physical abuse, while others are aging out the foster care system.

 A metro service organization is working to help these teens in a unique way. The Junior Service League is having a week-long apartment make over competition.  The two teams of 8 women will transform two apartments for teen girls at Stepping Stone.

Stepping Stone is a non-profit service organization that has been helping homeless youth in Kansas City since 1990.

Karen Franco is a member of the Junior Service League and served as the designer for one of the teams. "I think it’s important to give back to the community and its fun.  And you support people who are struggling," Fraco shared.

The week-long competition ends next weekend.  The winning team will get a trophy.
