JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Nearly 2,000 students in Duval County alone live in a homeless shelter or are couch surfing, that is, sleeping from one place to the other.

Some of these students were willing to share their experiences with First Coast News' Ken Amaro to increase the awareness of this. While they kept their living condition private from their peers during the school year, for several reasons, they were willing to share what their day to day experience involves.

These students truly believe that if the community was made aware of how many children are homeless, then the community could rally around a solution to this problem.
