Film Screening — America’s Invisible Children

On Tuesday, February 21st at 5:30pm the Newport HELP Center will be showing the documentary America’s Invisible Children: The Homeless Education Crisis in America.  Following the film there will be a Q&A/Discussion Panel for anyone interested. Food and beverages will also be provided at the event.

There are over 1.3 million homeless children in America. America’s Invisible Children shares the personal stories of homeless children from elementary to high school, overcoming unimaginable obstacles every day, in order to get their education. During the 2010-2011 school year there were 471 students in the Lincoln County School District that qualified as homeless. The HELP Centers and other agencies throughout Lincoln County helped to provide these students with the tools needed to stay in school and work towards graduation.
