No Place to Call Home: Book Reading and Community Discussion

  • January 30, 2016
  • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
  • Shir Tikvah

Join us for an afternoon of community learning and conversation about the harsh realities faced by LGBTQ homeless youth and what we, as a community, can do about it. Hear about a collaborative pilot launching in February to end LGBTQ youth homelessness. Learn what you can do to help.

The afternoon will include:

  • Ryan Berg, author & youth worker from Avenues for Homeless Youth, will read from his new book, No House to Call My Home*.
  • Rabbi Michael Latz and Senator Scott Dibble will provide their own reflections.
  • A panel of youth, youth workers and leaders from Avenues for Homeless Youth, The Link, Reclaim! and Point Source Youth will announce a brand new collaborative project launching soon in the Twin Cities. This project will bring together three interventions to effectively engage homeless LGBTQ youth - Family Reconnection, Short-Term Host Homes, and Rapid Rehousing. It will demonstrate how to take these interventions to scale, develop a much-needed body of research on effective homelessness prevention for youth, and advocate for massive increases in funding to address this urgent problem.
  • Tickets for the event are $25 and includes a copy of "No House to Call My Home." A portion of the ticket sales will benefit Avenues for Homeless Youth.

Sponsored by Shir Tikvah, Magers & Quinn, Avenues for Homeless Youth, The Link, Reclaim!, Point Source Youth
