The feature film Where God Left His Shoes deals with an issue many people dont like to think about: family homelessness. It really helps people understand what its like to be homeless when youre a family, notes Dana Smith of United Way. And I think the really different thing about this movie is that it is not just an entertainment thing; its really about educating people about the face of homelessness and hopefully motivating them to participate in our citys plan to end homelessness.
That plan would be Denvers Road Home (United Way is the projects financial steward). Where God Left His Shoes screens tonight at City Park (between the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Ferril Lake) as part of the citys free Movies in the Park series, but donations will be accepted, and proceeds will benefit Denvers Road Home. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m.; for more information, visit www.unitedwaydenver.org.
