Care For Friends Press Kit
Sleepout For Homelessness: Fire Spreaders
7pm - February 19th, 2021
Screening Premiere of Street Life: Faces Uncovered
The documentary Street Life: Faces Uncovered, presented by the Care For Friends and Street Samaritans, shows the stories and faces of some of those individuals who truly suffer. It is meant to demonstrate the true cost of being homeless, exposing the abandoned roots of our society where physical pain is just a small part of daily life.
The evening will begin with an introduction from the director, Neal Karski, and will wrap with a Q&A session on what is being done to address the homelessness epidemic in Chicago, what more we can do locally and how we can replicate those successes on a global scale.
By purchasing a ticket, you will help support Care For Friends' new mental health initiative, which will provide a safe space for our guests to discuss challenges they face on a daily basis. Proceeds from this event will enable us to launch this program in May in honor of Mental Health Awareness month. The group will be facilitated by a licensed therapist, but the discussions will be peer driven to encourage an environment of mutual trust and understanding.
