1 in 50 children in the US are now homeless: the story of one of them


Everything Matters: Beyond Meds

Lovely, poignant and painful too.

Inocente is a 15-year-old girl who has spent the last 9 years homeless in San Diego. Despite her circumstances and her dark park, she paints bright and whimsical paintings. This film, produced by non-profit film production company Shine Global, shows the world the new face of homelessness in America: children. 1 in 50 children in the US are now homeless. These numbers are staggering but the hope shown in Inocente’s story shows that the past does not necessarily define you, your dreams do.
