Attend a Film Screening and Discussion About Youth Homelessness—November 17, 2 p.m. EST

A young person looks out over a city.

Join the Family and Youth Services Bureau November 17 for a first-of-its-kind film screening and discussion about ending youth homelessness. Held in partnership with federal, state, and local stakeholders, the upcoming event will take place in 10 locations across the country—and online—to encourage widespread discussion and collaboration.

The event, which runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST, will include:

  • A screening of “The Homestretch,” a nationally broadcast documentary following the lives of three homeless youth in Chicago.
  • A national panel discussion featuring participants from the Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Justice, as well as the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness.
  • Nine regional panels focused on local needs and partnerships.

Interested individuals and organizations can join the entire event via livestream, or attend in-person in Washington, D.C., or one of the nine regional host sites.

To join from your computer, register through OVEE, the online viewing platform used by Independent Television Services.

Grantees of the Runaway and Homeless Youth Program will also receive an invitation from their project officer with information about the nearest regional event.
