A groundbreaking video premier event. Hidden Homeless is a Mouse Media production in collaboration with the Western New York Coalition for the Homeless that tells the story of youth homelessness in Buffalo, NY.
The city of Buffalo has around 1,500 homeless youth ages 0-21. Because of our cold climate many of them are living in train tunnels, abandoned homes and cars or surfing from couch to couch. Within three days on the street, they will commit a crime (beg for money, break into a property, steal food or sell their bodies) to survive. Most of these children can't go to school, work or vote. They had no face, no voice...until now. “Hidden Homeless” features these youth telling their stories in their words.
This free video release event will be held at WNEDs main studio and will include food, refreshments, speakers and Buffalo's first and only homeless youth video. Come out and be a part of this historic event for our kids. We as a community can make sure all our children have a place to call home.
Please spread the word and be sure to RSVP to Jose Latalladi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-248-0020 ASAP so we can make sure there's enough food to go around.
