James Wallace Plaza
(on top of the Rosemary Street Parking Deck) Chapel Hill, NC

Homeless Near and Far is the first of an annual free festival to help end homelessness in Orange County. The festival will take place on Friday April 23rd, from 5pm-8pm at the James Wallace Plaza on top of the Rosemary Parking Deck, and will feature local musicians from the homeless community, area bands, keynote speakers, a drum circle intermission and more. The festival is free of charge, though donations taken at the event will go directly toward the Community Empowerment Fund, a UNC Campus Y microfinance initiative offering small loans, savings opportunities, financial services and assertive support to individuals who are either homeless or at-risk of experiencing homelessness. (

After the celebrations subside, HNAF will host a dance party to raise funds for the rebuilding of the New Victorian School in Haiti.
