For Immediate Release
“Free Showing of Film about Child Welfare and Foster Care Problems”
Foster Care, juvenile delinquency and child homelessness has been a hot and heavily discussed topic in the community and the media. Think TwYce Production, a local newly emerged film production company, tackles the issue with the premier of “Chancellor Street- The Spirit of the American Dream.” This documentary takes a piercing look into the lives of three families that were torn apart by the Philadelphia Child Welfare System, commonly known as Department of Human Services (DHS) and the resilience that birth out of their years challenge and coping with all the rollercoaster moments. The film depicts the victory that can be found through the adversary of one’s inflicted challenges, which was tied into the birth of this great country during the Revolutionary War of April 19th 1775 to September 3rd 1783, when Great Britain forced its social injustice on the 13 colonies.
The Film screening will be held from 6pm to 7pm. Doors open at 5:30pm. The event is FREE and open to the general public. However, RSVP is encouraged due to limited seating. Audience will screen a 45-minute Film followed by a panel discussing with the featured families.
Cleous G. Young, the creative mind and engineer behind the film was impacted by the many families that shared the same psychological pain but different traumas of illegally losing their children to the foster system. Young, a long time playwright of different social issues (bullying, homelessness and trauma), felt the need to use his creative writing ability to bring this matter to the platform. Young, a former member of the Clinton Global Initiative and a recent Human Services & Psychology December 2015 graduate from Chestnut Hill College, knew immediately that the stories he heard wasn’t aligned to the definition of human services; an interdisciplinary commitment to improving the overall quality of life of service population. Therefore, he felt it appealing to utilize his degree in a manner that emphasize the basic value of Human Services; grow and develop families and communities. The film premiers is a follow up to Young’s former involvement with the Clinton Global Initiative and his community commitment to child-safety.
