This is a remarkable documentary about a visionary endeavor to help otherwise homeless people to provide for their needs which are largely unfulfilled by Ocean County, NJ's harsh social services policies. The Destiny's Bridge concept of a relatively self-sustaining community for people with such low income that they might otherwise be homeless is an outgrowth of the experience at Lakewood, NJ's `Tent City'.
This is a `must see' for anyone who cares about people in need,justice, natural and inalienable human rights, or the soul of America.

This is becoming an all too common problem all across our country. We send so much aid abroad yet we allow our own, many with mental health issues, to roam our streets hungry and homeless.

The premiere sold out, but there will be other showings in various theatres, and then at film festivals - after which time it will be available for purchase as a DVD.
Since: Aug 13

(NOTE: I made my previous post before I created a Topix account, and it mis-identified my location as "Philadelphia, PA". I am actually in Lakewood, NJ - a Tent City resident since March 1st.)
