Screened at many major festivals, including San Francisco, Rome, Big Sky, Shelter has also managed to win jury and audience awards for best documentary at the New Orleans Film Festival.

The documentary takes a look at the Covenant House, located on the outskirts of the French Quarter in New Orleans. This house cares for the most damaged population of youth that exits in society today.

Award winning filmmakers Brent and Craig Renaud spent six months in the house with unprecedented access, all so that they can bring the story of young people and meth addiction in rural America.

The stories are raw and emotional, as brave young people seek help and hope at the Covenant House. More than 70% of the residents in the house have been abused either physically or sexually, and many of them suffer from severe PTSD.
