The Film

Time To Listen is a 15 minute film focusing on the stories of six different homeless individuals and how they navigate life.  Whether it’s the economy, substance abuse, poor decisions, health issues, mental illness, chronic homelessness, or life change.  Whatever causes homelessness…these six individuals are opening up and sharing about how they became homeless, what it feels like to be homeless, and how they would like you to see them.
Time To Listen is created to introduce issues of homelessness and start a conversation in your group.  There is an accompanying discussion guide to help facilitate your group discussion.  This film intentionally does not suggest specific solutions.  It’s up to your group to discuss the stories from the film, face your own biases toward homelessness, and determine how you will personally get involved in your community.
90 second preview – We’ve produced a 90 second preview as a tool to share through social media and introduce the conversation in a larger setting for your church or organization.  The preview was designed so you can conveniently customize the end for your organization with your own video editor.
Discussion Guide – The one page PDF discussion guide is simply a tool to get the conversation going.  Your discussion will be interactive as you identify and share your thoughts on the cause of homelessness.  The goal isn’t to determine the cause of homelessness but to face our own beliefs of the cause and do something about it.
