Tent City, USA

Like most Americans, Steve had a home, a good job and a hobby – helping homeless people. Now Steve is minister of ‘Tent City’, and his home is a little tent in the woods of New Jersey. All sorts of people live in this community. Some are homeless because they lost their jobs. Others are in employment, but could still not afford to keep their homes. However, they haven’t lost their hope in a better future. They are fighting to protect ‘Tent City’ against the local government, which wants to demolish it.
