Whether you're trying to engage community members who don't understand youth homelessness or showing street youth the nature of the issue outside of their own experience, it helps to show the real faces—and real impact—of homelessness. In Hard Times Generation, a 12-minute DVD, homeless young people and their parents talk about trying to get by living in budget motels not far from Disney World in Florida. Produced by 60 Minutes, the original air date of the segment was March 6, 2011.
