Description:

SADOC (Social Awareness Documentary Film Club) and The Department of Housing and Residential Life will present the documentary "Homeless in Paradise" followed by guest speaker Ron Brown from Haven for Hope.

Homeless in Paradise follows four individuals who are homeless in Santa Monica, California. As they survive on the streets, Rick, Faye, Donna, and Simon struggle with addiction and mental illness, while receiving support from a city in crisis. From their perspective, we see a political and social system drawing fire from all sides of the political and social spectrum.

Haven for Hope is a place of hope and new beginnings for people in Bexar County experiencing homelessness. It is made up of two major programs: Prospects Courtyard and the Transformational Campus. Both are on the Haven for Hope property and require a visit to the Intake Department to get started. Prospects Courtyard is a low-barrier safe sleeping program that offers shelter and basic needs. The Transformational Campus is a center that offers services and shelter with an emphasis toward addressing the root causes of homelessness.
