Webinar | Journeying with Vulnerable Youth from Homelessness to Hope and Healing
April 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Almost 12 million children in our nation are currently living in poverty. Sadly, approximately 4.2 million young people under the age of 24 experience homelessness. This webinar will draw upon the many years of experience of women leaders from both the Harlem Children’s Zone and Covenant House, two large non-profit organizations whose goal is to achieve positive outcomes for young people by journeying with them from trauma-filled lives to hope and healing.
The panelists will discuss the challenges that these young people face including how the pandemic has exacerbated already existing disparities. We will explore together how each of us can play a part in supporting the most vulnerable among God’s children to fulfill their great promise.
