Hidden Homeless, created by Mark Hall of Mouse Media Productions, in collaboration with the Western New York Coalition for the Homeless, tells the neglected story of youth homelessness in Buffalo.
The film documents the experiences of some of Buffalos nearly 1,500 homeless youth, many of whom must survive by living in train tunnels, abandoned homes and cars. The film also addresses the fact that some homeless youth are reduced to begging for money, stealing food or even selling their bodies.
The purpose of this documentary is to advocate to prevent funding cuts to homeless youth shelters in Erie county and to educate and raise awareness about the issue of youth homelessness in Buffalo, New York.
Most of these young people can't go to school, work or vote. They have had no face, no voice...until now. Hidden Homeless presents their stories in their own words.
