Homeless Teens Sued by Tampa Charity

A Tampa-based charity that aims to help homeless teens is raising concerns about how far it will go to hold participants accountable to the strict rules of the program, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Starting Right, Now, is trying to recover thousands of dollars from two former participants for expenses paid for by the nonprofit.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
