Description : The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to a screening of the documentary film “Homeless in Modesto” on March 22 at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. The free event is part of the CEP Spring Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.

The 2017 Stanislaus County homeless count tallied 1,661 people, including 243 children, and last year approximately 40 homeless people died in the county. “Homeless in Modesto” puts a face to some of these homeless, showcases community groups helping them, examines some root causes, and indicates ways residents can help address this complex and costly issue.

The one-hour film is followed by a panel discussion with a homeless man now housed, a representative of a local homeless helping agency, and the film team.
