Speakers' Bureau Event Request Form
Thank you for your interest in having the “Faces of Homelessness” Speakers' Bureau attend your upcoming event. This public education program is an essential part of our mission at the National Coalition for the Homeless, and we appreciate you giving us this opportunity.

We promote advocacy, education, and service. As people who have been homeless or are experiencing homelessness, the speakers in the Bureau are the real experts on homeless issues and we believe that their voices are essential in the fight to end homelessness. Speakers' presentations work to promote advocacy, understanding and service.

We look forward to working with you and learning more about your event. Please review our information and guidelines for event hosts and complete the event form and return it in a timely manner.

Event Guidelines and Information
We are able to provide virtual or in-person presentations. We ask that in-person audiences are either masked or fully vaccinated against COVID19.

Speakers are able to provide:
- An introduction to homeless statistics and policy
- Moderation of discussions around homelessness
- Relate their personal experience losing their home, and if relevant, regaining housing
- Answer audience questions, and/or provide informal conversation with audience members

Please plan to give each speaker 10-20 minutes to relate their story, adding time if you would like for them to give an overview of homeless stats or policy.

These time frames are only recommendations. The Speakers' Bureau has worked with a variety of faith groups, student organizations and social action service-oriented groups with presentations ranging from full high school assemblies to smaller panel presentations. We can be flexible and can adjust our presentation format to fit your group's schedule.
Honoraria : Each speaker receives a $100 honorarium for their time and expertise.

Program Fee : We ask that groups provide a program administration fee to the National Coalition for the Homeless of $50 per speaker to bring the “Faces of Homelessness Speakers' Bureau to your group.

Total costs for engagements:
For 1 speakers: $150
For 2 speakers: $300
For 3 speakers: $450

Payment: NCH will send an invoice via email to your group once the request form is received and event is scheduled. We ask that you pay upon receipt of the invoice, in advance of the speaking engagement. Payment via check is preferred, but we also accept cash or credit card charge via our website.

Travel: We do request that sponsoring groups cover the cost of travel and lodging for in-person events.
