Can you imagine selling your home, car, and all your worldly possessions and hitting the road to raise awareness about a problem across the country that you are passionate about solving?  That's exactly what Diane Nilan, founder and president of the national nonprofit organization HEAR US, did back in 2005.  With her 25 years of experience working with impoverished and homeless families, she will speak tonight on the topic of “Children and Youth Homelessness: Why it Matters and What We Can Do” at 7pm in the Hunt Union Ballroom on the SUNY Oneonta campus.  This talk is free and open to the public.
