With professional and peer to peer training and development, STREATS is designed to develop the esteem and well being of the homeless, ex-offender, chemical recoverers, under educated and low income. STREATS began in 2006 with an unprecedente...d objective – Enable the homeless to tell their story in a comical, satirical, yet real manner via television. A cast and crew of homeless and formerly homeless were trained in videography and created a seven episode series; now known to be the STREATS Soap Opera Series. These individuals directed, filmed, acted, and marketed their product in which the initial episode can be seen at www.streats.tv. The STREATS signature soap opera series continues in 2010. With your help we will train a new crew to operate cameras and learn the art of filmmaking, with the hopes of having a STREATS camera crew of homeless individuals armed with cameras to bring you the STREATS Soap Opera Series and up to the day STREATS News.# Homeless engagement, enlightenment, and empowerment
