Miguel has struggled to find a safe and supportive place to live for many years. He's aged out of the foster care system, but still needs help as he's also dealing with mental illness issues. But the system is frustrating for Miguel. He moves from shelters, to the street, to his girlfriend's apartment, to assisted living environments, to hospitals, but has not managed to find a place to call home.

Migel was mentored by Jamie York.
