There is an estimated 1.6 million homeless youth living in the U.S. -- many of whom depend on the structure of high school, services provided by local organizations, and the support of their community to survive. What happens to these young people when the school year ends or when local services are not available? These questions are challenging and urgent -- but if we work together, we can help support young people in need across the country.
The Homestretch, a powerful documentary about youth homelessness, is premiering nationwide on PBS this April 13th on Independent Lens at 10/9c (check local listings). Watching the film is an important first step towards raising awareness, creating a dialogue, and inspiring community engagement around youth homelessness.
