Lifetree Cafe will present "Children With No Place to Call Home: Helping Kids in Crisis," at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Cana, 18 S. Third St. Refreshments will be served.

The program features a filmed visit with homeless children and their parents, as well as with agency workers who assist homeless children.

An estimated one in 50 children is homeless. Approximately 40 percent of those children are 5 years old or younger.

"We see children who have lived in a car or outside, or who have spent time living from shelter to shelter, or hotel to hotel," said Jennifer Herrera, executive director of Colfax Community Network, a homeless-outreach agency. "It makes me angry because we can do better."

Call 302-8036 with any questions.
