        The Homestretch: Discussion Guide | The Homestretch

        This discussion guide introduces the documentary film The Homestretch, which centers on three homeless teens who brave Chicago winters, high school pressures, the trauma of abandonment, and life alone on the streets to build a brighter future for themselves and create new, surprising definitions of "home." This guide provides background information on the film and youth homelessness in the United States as well as discussion questions, suggested activities, and additional resources to combat the problem of youth homelessness.
