ACE Participates in Homelessness Awareness Symposium

On Tuesday, March 6th, ACE Executive Director Jim Martin and Project Stay Coordinator Elizabeth McNierney attended a Homelessness Awareness Symposium at Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School. Students from four different NYC high schools attended and four different organizations (ACE, Rock & Wrap it Up, Picture the Homeless and Masbia) presented the unique work they do to help NYC’s homeless population – everything from advocacy, to food pantries, etc.  Jim and Liz facilitated discussions with the students on their perceptions of homelessness, the underlying causes of homelessness, ACE’s unique approach to tackling those underlying causes and how the students can get involved in their own communities in the fight against homelessness.
