group for homeless families in Massachusetts.  This successful event was =
featured in the Boston Globe.

Mierendorf was in Boston and Washington DC recently, filming part of a =
segment in Boston with particular focus at Boston's Long Island Shelter, =
part of the City of Boston's Public Health Commission (BPHC). Michael =

advocate for homeless people in America. Michael Stoops also traveled to =
Boston to be part of the film at Long Island Shelter.  Filmmaker Lauren  =

Mariann Bucina, John Rosenthal, and Rich Weintraub.  The filming could =
