Shelter: Saving Homeless Veterans in the USA is an Investigative Documentary by Two-time Academy Award-winning director Barbara Kopple.
It intimately documents the on-the-ground work of the veteran-founded community-based service organization, Veterans Resource Center, in Northern California.
Sharing the struggles of those they seek to pull out of a life lived on the streets, Shelter tells a story of vets saving vets, delving into the psychological trauma created by military service, the effects that remain long after active duty, and the difficult road back to a normal life for these women and men.
According to data from the Department of Veterans Affairs, there are around 19 million US veterans as of 2021. That represents almost 10% of the total US adult population.
