We teamed up with the Peabody Award-winning program, The Moth to develop the storytelling skills within family homelessness providers and advocacy organizations in the Puget Sound region. We invited applications from people who have a personal story related to family homelessness to attend special workshops and learn how to craft their idea into a compelling five-minute story that can be told in front of a live audience. Seventeen Seattle-area residents attended The Moth’s storytelling workshop that was held at Seattle U in February and March of 2015.

Nine of the participants were chosen to tell their poignant, beautiful, and personal stories about how they’ve been affected by homelessness in front of a live audience at the sold-out event, Home: Lost and Found — A Moth Community Showcase on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at Fremont Abbey Arts Center.

Stories to Air Nationally

Eight of the stories from the Showcase were chosen to air on The Moth Radio Hour, a show that airs on more than 500 stations across the country!

Watch the rest of the rest of the nationally-aired stories by Timothy Bell, Robin Covington, Kelly Craig, Fritzina Johnson, Launa Lea, Jason Schmidt and Gretchen Waschke.
