The Homeless Youth Project is a project of Pan Left Productions in partnership with The Carlos G. Figueroa Foundation. We have created a documentary to inform the people of Tucson Arizona of the realities of what homeless youth have to deal with in order to survive on the streets. This documentary and it’s screening will hopefully encourage them to get our youths off the streets into housing with services.
Homeless Youth Project Documentary Screening will be held in the Armory Park Ballroom, 220 S 5th Avenue from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
