Over 100,000 United States Veterans are homeless every year. In a powerful one-hour documentary, filmmaker Issac Goeckeritz takes viewers into the largely invisible world of homeless veterans and the difficult, but hopeful, pathways home. Street Vets is the culmination of a year-long chronicling of the life and times of ten men living at Ogden, Utah’s Homeless Veterans Fellowship - a transitional housing program aimed at assisting homeless Veterans into self sufficiency. The film provides a remarkably candid view of the long-term scars of war and personal tragedy that, in many cases, have led to alcohol and drug abuse…and life on the streets.

Street Vets aired on PBS Station KUED7 in January 2011. The film is used by the Homeless Veterans Fellowship to further fundraising efforts. The film has also been used by numerous homeless veteran providers across the United States to motivate and offer inspiration to veterans using their programs.
