The interactive study guide, designed to help churches learn how to better serve the homeless, is part of a five-pronged approach to shed light on the homeless situation.
SACRAMENTO, CA — (December 21, 2023 – Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day): In a continuation of their mission to bring awareness and solutions to homelessness in America, Robert Craig Films is announcing the March 5 release of No Address Interactive Study Guide, available from Christian publisher David C Cook. David C Cook is a nonprofit organization dedicated to publishing and distributing leadership, discipleship, and worship resources to help Christians all over the world grow in their faith and pass it on to the next generation.
The release of the No Address Interactive Study Guide (now available for pre-order) launches the 2024 campaign of “The Big 5” solutions for homelessness from Robert Craig Films; the full campaign includes the movie No Address, the award-winning documentary, Americans with No Address, the novel No Address and a music album, all available later this year.
The No Address Interactive Study Guide, consisting of a physical study guide as well as supporting videos accessed through a QR code, provides education and structure for individuals, small groups, congregations, pastors, and leaders nationwide who seek a compassionate, impactful solution to the growing challenge of homelessness. Created by Dr. Robert G. Marbut, Jr., Former White House ‘Federal Homelessness Czar” and Discovery Institute Senior Fellow, the study guide boasts contributions from a team of national experts and leaders from the faith-based and non-profit communities, including Dr. Denis G. Antoine II, John Ashmen (Citygate Network – President Emeritus), Rev. Ron Brown, Barbara Duffield, Rev. Robert Gehman, Commissioner Jolene Hodder, Dr. Roxanne Jordan, Rev. John Samaan, and Rev. Brandan Thomas. Myrka Dellanos, Max Lucado and Amy Grant also lend support.
“A diverse group of some of the smartest and most thoughtful faith-based public-policy advocates within the homelessness assistance community assembled to create this resource,” says Dr. Marbut. “From pastors to lay leaders, this is a wonderful gathering of faith-oriented contributors who lead us through the study of homelessness. This study guide will provide support and resources for industry leaders who want to serve, in a meaningful way, those experiencing homelessness.”
- Types of homelessness; big picture and root causes.
- Why it is up to the people to make the change and not rely on policy and government programs.
- Engage rather than enable.
- How to best collaborate with existing agencies as an individual or group.
- Why duplicating services beyond the established professional agencies can harm more than help.

“Having the opportunity to partner with Robert Craig Films on this impactful project was an immediate yes for us,” said Chadd Miller, executive vice president of David C Cook’s Learning Resources Group. “We are passionate about creating an innovative, interactive study guide, intentionally designed to equip the church to help our brothers and sisters who are experiencing homelessness. I’m excited to bring this study to churches and community groups—including my own—so we as a faith community can better understand how to engage with and show Christ’s love to our neighbors.”
