      Harm reduction is a model that has been very successful helping youth experiencing homelessness gain stability and direction. Using harm reduction for youth requires adapting the model to develop a youth appropriate intervention focused on positive development. Panelists Bob Mecum and Geoffrey Hollenbach from Lighthouse Youth Services in Cincinnati, OH and Jon Bradley and Chris Bicknell from Preble Street in Portland, ME joined Jennifer Ho and three youth who have experienced homelessness in an interactive forum. The panel discussed the basics of a harm reduction model for youth and the benefits gained from meeting youth where they are at, offering them the supports and trusting relationships they need to gain stability.

                    Life is a paradox and so are we. Everyday is a new tussle. a tussle to live, to survive, to come good, to achieve, to believe, to hope, to smile and to love. This "Halftime Offside" is a saga evolved in the underbelly of this tussle called life. It's about those who are "them", the abnormals, the outcasts, the powerless, the losers and the likes. This film is all about giving it another chance... about hope and about courage of making a decision and standing by it. This film is a story of a few of us who are trying to give it another chance...our heartbreaks, aspirations and fears. It is a documentation of the complex choices that the life offers and the ones that we make. It is humane encounter within society which hopefully should transcend prejudices all across. It is an effort to broaden people's perspectives towards another person. It's a film about music and it's a film about football.Its a strange bunch and a mix of men who are struggling to stay sane in their own ways. It's a thread connecting all of them through their vulnerabilities, helping them to hang on. The guys who are walking a tightrope every single day of their lives. Real fighters. Most of these men have seen their prime pass by. For them it's a sort of homecoming. Remember that column in the Reader's digest called "LIFE'S LIKE THAT"
