Invisible Innocence: my story as a homeless youth

by Maria Fabian with Fred Smith


For most high school students, senior year is a joyous time filled with unforgettable memories. 


For Maria Fabian, senior year marked the time she lived alone in an abandoned apartment with no electricity, heat or running water. 


This is the story of a homeless youth told through the eyes of a trampled soul who found the courage to believe and the strength to come forward so others may finally understand a problem that our society can no longer ignore.
