From VICE Documentary Films, executive producer Michael K. Williams (The Wire) and the Peabody award-winning Renaud Brothers, SHELTER is a powerful documentary filmed with unfettered access over the course of one year at Covenant House. The film captures the raw and emotional stories of our brave young people as they seek help and hope – and the efforts of our staff struggling to work miracles everyday on their behalf.
SHELTER has been screened at several major festivals (Rome, Big Sky, San Francisco) and was honored with a special jury prize and an audience award for best documentary at the New Orleans Film Festival.
CHNOLA is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Much more than “just a shelter,” we provide supportive counseling and the tools needed to help our youth become independent, productive members of our community.
