Beyond Homeless: Finding Hope

Short documentaries

Director: Sean Sciavolin

Producer: David and Mary Theroux

Length: 37 minutes

Featuring interviews with individuals currently experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless, homeless advocates, service providers, policy professionals, experts in addiction and mental illness, law enforcement, political leaders, and homelessness innovators, Beyond Homeless: Finding Hope is an exploration of what’s driving the homelessness crisis in California, with a focus on San Francisco, and an in-depth study of an alternative approach that has reversed what had been a growing crisis in San Antonio, Texas. Through contrasting the two approaches, Beyond Homeless offers a vision and new hope with real solutions for San Francisco—and beyond.

Q&A: John Papola, Mary Theroux
