11/5: Faces of Homelessness: An Intimate Conversation

In partnership with Hands on Hartford, UConn Hartford invites the campus community to listen to some of our neighbors who are experiencing or have experienced homelessness bravely share their personal stories. The conversation works to dispel myths, educate audiences about the causes of homelessness, and encourage us all to engage with all members of our community to cultivate meaningful change. It all starts with a conversation.
