There are thousands of kids in the Triad who don't have a home to go to.
There are 663 homeless students in Alamance County, 55 in Davidson County, 750 in Forsyth County, 260 in Randolph County, 59 in Rockingham County and 2,600 kids are homeless in Guilford County.
In Guilford County, one woman is trying to use some limited resources to make a permanent impact on some of our most vulnerable children.
"We try not to use the word homeless because it's got such a stigma attached to it. You hear homeless and you think there is someone living beneath a bridge, but there are a lot of other conditions," explains Susan Eubanks, Homeless Liaison for Guilford County Schools.
Susan Eubanks wanted a place for these kids to go.
Last year, she started a summer camp for the some of the 2,000 Guilford county students without a home, and this summer that number is 2,600.
"The staff works really hard to make sure these kids don't feel different, that they're just one of the kids."
At camp, for three weeks, they get to be normal. They get to forget about the adult stresses in their kid lives.
"We get to jump rope, hula hoop and play basketball," said one camper.
"I really like playing basketball so I plan to get an academic and basketball scholarship," said another camper.
"If they put their mind to it, then they can do it. They feel the success here and if that motivates them to go on and do well in school, to aspire to do something, then I think that we've done a lot for these students," said Eubanks.
This camp is held at Rankin and Montileu Elementary Schools.
Susan Eubanks says the camp is paid for by a grant but says these kids need help year-round. They're looking for school supplies, clothing and even food.
