November is recognized as National Homeless Awareness Month, so we thought we’d throw out a few ideas of how you can help the homeless in the Colorado Springs community – and maybe have a little fun too. If you’re in town, check out the following events in the next few weeks.
Go to the “2019 Hunger Games Comedy Improv-A-Thon”
See The Vagrant, a play by Brett Hursey
Watch The Public, a movie about homelessness
Talk to us at the Springs Rescue Mission “Coffee Takeover” at Building Three Coffee
“We Have a Story: Homeless in Colorado Springs” photo exhibition
When: Until the end of November
Where: Library 21C (1175 Chapel Hills Dr, Colorado Springs, CO 80920) and Penrose Library (20 N Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903)
What: A photo-documentary project completed in 2019 by people experiencing homelessness that has become a two-part exhibition. Each photographer selected two images for the show and wrote a story to accompany them.
How much: Free
