#NCFYtalk: Using Film to End Youth Homelessness February 19 at 2 p.m. EST

A homeless young man in the cold.

Join us for a NCFY chat on using film to end youth homelessness. The hour-long Twitter conversation will focus on "The Homestretch," a documentary that follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate and build a future. We will be joined by one of the film's associate producers and staff from The Night Ministry, a Family & Youth Services Bureau Runaway and Homeless Youth grantee featured in the film.

You'll learn how to take advantage of upcoming broadcasts and showings of "The Homestretch" to raise awareness of youth homelessness and to cultivate community support. You'll also learn about resources tied to the film's release, and walk away with specific tips related to fundraising, volunteer engagement and more.

This Twitter chat is part of a continued collaboration to end youth homelessness by 2020, a goal set in "Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness." We hope you will join us to see how informative, compelling storytelling through film can help us move closer to that goal.
