SAN DIEGO—Public performances of plays that offer a window into incredible journeys of those who have experienced homelessness and faced it with strength, resilience and humor will be held June 14-16, 2024, in the Neil Morgan Auditorium, at San Diego Central Library. Talkbacks following the performances will provide an opportunity to bridge gaps of understanding about homelessness and provide a solution-oriented forum for discussion.

This is a collaborative effort between Father Joe’s Villages, Playwrights Project and the San Diego Central Library, made possible with funding from a Humanities for All Project grant from California Humanities. The project is being guided by Humanities Advisor, Ken Saragosa, a PEN America literary award winner, who is also an expert with lived experience in homelessness in San Diego.

Father Joe’s Village’s mission is to prevent and end homelessness one life at time in the spirt of Compassion, Respect, Empathy, Empowerment and Dignity (CREED). Project Director, Aleta Barthell, says “By sharing these stories with the community in ‘Stories of CREED in Action,’ the hope is to recognize and acknowledge the humanity that is at stake in our current homelessness crisis.”

For more information, contact Aleta Barthell at Aleta.Barthell@neighbor.org or (619) 446-2127.
