In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary The Homestretch, a homeless youth named Anthony talks about trying to get through school after sleeping on the streets, while Pat Scott, a Chicago school’s Homeless Liaison, talks about the list of homeless students that she works with. Each name on the list “represents a person who’s going to be awesome someday.”
The Homestretch premieres on PBS’s Independent Lens on Monday, April 13, 2015.
