The "Push for Change" initiative is travelling across the country to raise awareness about youth homelessness.
Joe Roberts is known as the Skid Row CEO. When he talks about his passion for helping the homeless, he knows what they’re going through from a first-hand experience. He lived on the streets of Vancouver addicted to drugs before, with the assistance of others including a police officer who saw the potential in him, turned his life around and eventually became the CEO of a multi-million dollar company. Beginning in May, he’ll be taking that passion across Canada in the Push for Change. He’ll be pushing a shopping cart across the country for 517 days as part of a national awareness and youth empowerment project to help end youth homelessness.
