Lost in America - Join Us for a Must See Film

Lost in America Trailer
Every now and then, you come across a film so thoughtful, so compelling, so moving, that you become an evangelist for an issue. When my good friend, Chey Reynolds, Director of Development at our partner, City House, reached out to me about Lost in America, I had the feeling this might be one of those films, because she spoke so passionately about it. Then I saw it. Wow! I immediately texted Rebecca Cox, our Vice President, that she had to see it. I became an evangelist for it too! And, Rebecca had the same reaction. We both agreed with Chey, that it was vital that we bring this film to our community.  

It is our pleasure, therefore, City House and MDHA, to invite you to an exclusive fundraising and awareness event to see this phenomenal 97 minute documentary, that promises to take film festivals, this year, by storm, as well as inspire you to act on behalf of
homeless youth.

As Senator Patrick Leahy, a champion of homeless youth in Congress, says, "To make change, the public needs to know not just numbers, but faces and stories behind those numbers. 'Lost In America' is doing just that." This film is not for the faint of heart. It is real. It is raw. It inspires. And, YOU need to see it.
