Watch "Our Journey Home"

“Our Journey Home” is a feature-length film, produced by ReThink Housing and narrated by renowned singer Jewel, which challenges our perceptions about people in need of supportive housing. It follows three families and examines how their relationship to home has shaped them. The film also looks at the role we all play in supporting those who struggle in having a stable place from where they can grow and dream. A place to call their own.
