PHOENIX – TumbleTees is a program that is helping homeless teens by teaching them job and life skills through a screen printing shop. Douglas Criswell is one youth who has taken advantage of the services offered by the Tumbleweed Center for Homeless Youth, which helped him get back on his feet after losing his apartment. The organization just moved to a larger, digitally oriented facility that will allow teens to produce more T-shirts, bags and more.
