Street Vets

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 7pm on WORLD.

Over 100,000 United States Veterans are homeless every year. In a powerful documentary, filmmaker Issac Goeckeritz takes viewers into the largely invisible world of homeless veterans and the difficult, but hopeful, pathways home. Street Vets is the culmination of a year-long chronicling of the life and times of ten men living at the Homeless Veterans Fellowship - a transitional housing program aimed at assisting homeless Veterans into self-sufficiency. The film provides a remarkably candid view of the long-term scars of war and personal tragedy that, in many cases, have led to alcohol and drug abuse…and life on the streets.
