Did you know that more than 39 percent of the homeless are 18 years old and younger?
Residents are invited to attend the premiere of the documentary “Left Behind,” a film that chronicles the lives of homeless youths in San Joaquin County. It is being shown at the University of the Pacific’s Janet Leigh Theatre on Nov. 13 in support of Homeless Awareness Month.
The theater opens at 5:30 p.m. A panel and question-and-answer session moderated by Derek Clark, an entertainer and motivational speaker known for “From Foster Care to Success,” will follow the film.
In lieu of entrance fees, Homeless and Foster Youth Services will accept donations for the San Joaquin County Office of Education Educational Foundation.
The film was produced by San Joaquin County Office of Education and directed by Shane Williamson. The use of Janet Leigh Theatre was sponsored by Gladys L. Benerd School of Education at University of the Pacific.
