The Homestretch aims to #EndYouthHomelessness

Kirsten Kelly and Anne de Mare's The Homestretch continues to gather strong momentum in its social impact campaign's bid to end youth homelessness. With multiple screenings set across the country (and more coming into us each day), political activity, and media interest ahead of the April 13th world television premiere of the film on PBS Independent Lens, there is cause for optimism that the film is helping to bring much need attention and action to this issue.
