Lifting the Veil: Mental Health and Substance Abuse among Homeless Youth in NOLA
The Junior League of New Orleans is a proud partner of Covenant House New Orleans. Much more than “just a shelter,” Covenant House provides supportive counseling and the tools needed to help youth become independent, productive members of the community.
In this event, Jim Kelly, Executive Director of Covenant House, will present a screening of “Shelter,” a powerful film by the award-winning Renaud Brothers and executive producer Michael K. Williams. This documentary tells the raw and emotional stories of brave young people as they seek help and hope.
The film will be succeeded by a screening of the “Where Are They Now” short video that follows up with the 10 youth featured in the documentary and a discussion of the needs and experiences of homeless youth in New Orleans.
