Prevail News: A Hand UP

We created a documentary entitled Guttered to trumpet the life-and-death human need for immediate housing (Housing First!).

The ultimate consequence without housing? Inescapable homelessness.

Use this powerful film to educate yourself and others!

Help us advocate for the unsheltered by a public showing of Guttered. Invite the director/filmmaker and a street survivor to your public showing. Contact Jerry Sedgewick: jerry(at)prevailnews(dot)org.

Prevail News is taking the next step to purchase multi-bedroom homes to create rooming houses for the unsheltered in our Prevail Homes.

Rather than spend hundreds of millions on high rises, we are imagining multi-bedroom homes in neighborhoods: Our Prevail Homes solution.

These homes will house 5+ formerly unsheltered people. Much, much cheaper, easier to accomplish, and could be a boon to marginal neighborhoods.

Do we think outside the box? Yep. Our FUNdraiser is also a Pilot TV/Netflix episode.

We’re the planning stage now for our OddSportz event: laptop throwing (I’m sure you’ve wanted to do that!) Hold your seats (and laptops) for an event date and location
