No Dwelling: Homeless in America

No Dwelling Homeless in America

No Dwelling: Homeless in America is an original play that gives an account of what it’s like to be homeless in Guilford County

Homelessness is a national epidemic from which Greensboro and Guilford County are not immune. It is estimated that 949 individuals experience homelessness on any given night in our area. 201 of those are children. Likewise, the Guilford County Schools system annually reports data on children experiencing homelessness, and during the 2012/2013 school year, Guilford County Schools reported that 2,277 students experienced homelessness. What this all means is that over the course of a year, about 4,500 individuals experience homelessness in our county. Over 800 of these individuals are children, over 120 are victims of domestic violence, and over 430 are veterans.

No Dwelling: Homeless in America by Miller Lucky Jr. is an original production which gives an account of what it’s like to be homeless. The play examines facts and opinions of both homeless advocates and adversaries, and reveals causes of homelessness, which range widely from abuse to mental illness. The stories and events in the play are true and inspired by real people, including homeless people living in Guilford County, NC. Most names have been changed but their accounts and testimonies remain the same.
