"Faces of Homelessness" was created to introduce presentations
given by members of the Speakers' Bureau. The Speakers' Bureau is a program
of the National Coalition for the Homeless that is comprised of people
who are or have been homeless. It works to educate the public about homelessness
and what can be done to end it.
The Speakers' Bureau is a realistic and dynamic tool to teach and challenge
tomorrow's leaders as well as empower those who have experienced homelessness
first-hand. By fostering an environment of self-worth, respect, and understanding
for all people, the Speakers' Bureau challenges us to believe that we
can and should end homelessness.
