Not bad but could be better
April 18, 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This is not the best DVD on homelessness but it has it's moment from the interviews we see in this documentary. It would have been better if more detail interviews of homeless on the streets were shown and daily struggles instead of one on one camera interviews. Try, "It was a wonderful life " now out of print I believe ? or Without a home. I watch the homeless documentaries because it can happen to me , and to make yourself more aware of how you live your life and to be careful how you spend and save your money. Do not take anything for granted nothing is guaranteed ,not a job and not our health. Anyone of those two things or both we can become homeless.

This is a much needed documentary on the "inconvenient reality" of homelessness and exposes how it can actually be fixed. These are all hard working people that had a tragedy happen in their life or someone else's and therefore they are stripped away of all they have and are pushed around from bridge to bridge. No rights, not even a name to the government. We need to understand the severity of it and the ease of its solution. This documentary is eye opening for all who are willing to see the truth and fix this problem that could happen to any of us or someone we love. Lack of money should not strip someone away of their humanity and identity. This DVD shows that.

Heartbreaking, but sends a necessary message

This documentary gets to the heart of homelessness and without a doubt will move you. There are poignant interviews with previously homeless and currently homeless individuals who share their stories of how easily they went from hard-working citizens with stable incomes, to having no place to sleep at night. Beyond the stories, there are substantial interviews with local experts, people who work for organizations like Amos House and Crossroads, here in Rhode Island. They explain statistics and facts and dispel many myths and stereotypes surrounding homelessness. If you live in Rhode Island, I highly recommend that you watch this film and educate yourself on an epidemic happening RIGHT HERE at home. And if you live elsewhere-- this is most certainly a worthwhile documentary to watch, if for no other reason than to understand the core issues of homelessness and to understand how easy it would be for any of us to slip into the world of homelessness.
Could this be your neighbor?

This dvd shows that many homeless are actually educated individuals that may well be part of your current, everyday community. For all outward appearances, they look like you and I - they don't stand apart - except that at the end of the day, they have no home to return to. The documentary successfully dispels an old myth that the homeless are largely a population that can't help themselves. It features poignant interviews that go to the heart without being sappy: these homeless people are well-educated, once proud individuals who were willing to show this director their vulnerabilities, fears, and hopes. It's a fabulous dvd to watch and discuss with your family. I learned a lot from watching this, and highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to challenge their own prejudices. You won't regret it.
Homeless, not hopeless

This video spoke to my heart, reminding me that we should be thankful everyday. Just waking up is a blessing. Being homeless is not something that just happens to "that other person". It can happen to any of us at any time. This video opened my eyes to not only my situation, but to see more clearly, the face of the homeless. It is so encouraging to know that there is a solution. We just need to activate ourselves and our civic leaders to step up to the plate and provide what our homeless need. I know it's not quite that simple, but it's not that hard either. This is a great video, not only because it opens our minds to what is going on around us (to us), it also gives a viable solution. I thank the Cozzi's for persevering and presenting the Hidden Face of Homelessness.
