Come listen to inspiring stories of homeless youth from the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Speakers will share how they become homeless, their journey through homelessness, and what they are doing now to advocate for young people currently in the struggle.
The panel will also feature Fr. David Kelly, a founder of the Precious Blood Ministry Center for Reconciliation. The center seeks out and responds to violence, especially as it is found among youth (gang violence) and in the midst of racial barriers that divide a community. They reach out to victims, offenders, and the community in an effort to promote healing and reconciliation.
Pizza and soda will be provided after the event.
Faces of Youth Homelessness is sponsored by Center for Civic Engagement, Sheil Catholic Center, and Northwestern Community Development Corporation.
