At Touchstone, on almost any given day, there are 32 homeless and at-risk youth aged 16 – 24. Most of these residents are already battling drug or alcohol addictions, have experienced violence and death and some are raising children of their own. The documentary video and photo essay, Touchstone, was shot over six months and presents a picture that is sometimes ugly, often inspiring and always complex.
