On Thursday, December 2nd at Oakland’s historic Piedmont Theatre, doors will open at 6 PM for a very special event, presented by EveryOne Home, to gather public support and involvement in our efforts to end homelessness in Alameda County by the year 2020.
Building on the success and popularity of EveryOne Home’s 2008 Movie Event, EveryOne Home will sponsor a free screening of the powerful 2009 documentary film, “Empress Hotel”. Award-winning Bay Area filmmakers Allie Light and Irving Saraf directed “Empress Hotel”, chronicling the lives of formerly homeless residents living in a 90-room permanent supportive housing development located in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.
