Take Action to Help #EndYouthHomelessness this April 13th-19th
Want to help support homeless youth in your community before the school year ends? Watch the PBS national broadcast premiere of The Homestretch on April 13th and join our week of action this April 13th-19th to help #EndYouthHomelessness. There is an estimated 1.6 million homeless youth living in the U.S. — many of whom depend on the structure of high school, services provided by local organizations, and the su…pport of their community to survive. What happens to these young people when the school year ends or when local services are not available? These questions are challenging and urgent — but if we work together, we can help support young people in need across the country.
The Homestretch, a powerful documentary about youth homelessness, is premiering nationwide on PBS this April 13th on Independent Lens at 10/9c (check local listings). Watching the film is an important first step towards raising awareness, creating a dialogue, and inspiring community engagement around youth homelessness.
