Hope For Our Own: An L.A. Story needs your support to obtain film permits and hire an editor to bring this informative short documentary to life!
Directed and produced by Riley Beres and Jimmy Deshler.

This eye opening documentary will address the growing epidemic of homelessness in Los Angeles. There are over 51,000 homeless people in Los Angeles County, and of that number over 12,000 have been homeless over one year and over 9,000 are Veterans that have served our country. These young filmmakers will address the reasons why these numbers continue to grow, what help is out there, and how they vow to make a change.
Follow Beres and Deshler as they embark on this journey to bring social awareness to this growing epidemic. They will give a first-hand view on the many faces of homelessness and show you the shocking facts that very few know. You will get an inside view on others that are making a difference at shelters, missions, and organizations. While these two teens don't promise a resolution, they do promise to create a piece of work that inspires change.

Hope For Our Own needs the help of the community, businesses, and fellow supporters of the cause to complete the production of this astonishing documentary.
