A Documentary About a Homeless Community Standing Up to the Local Government.
Art4TheHomeless has discovered a tent city in New Jersey and has partnered with their spokesperson, Alex Libman, to promote and help raise awareness about this special city of hope for those who are homeless and have no place to go. We've featured them in the Art4TH Zine and even held an online auction from the Founder's jewelry collection, the Crider Collection where all the funds benefited the Tent City. But now, the Tent City is being bulldozed, along with dozens of other tent cities across the country. The Tent City is still there, but it's only a matter of time before they see the last of the bulldozing.
What is Destiny's Bridge?
Correction. The question should be rephrased: What are Destiny's Bridges? Destiny's Bridge has two parts. One is a feature-length documentary film about the Tent City. And the second part is a brand new nonprofit organization that Minister Steve, Bringham, the person behind the chapel and face who many see as a face of hope and inspiration--has been developing for the past few years.
Above is a YouTube Video of Piano Man, a long time resident of Tent City, singing his last song. This is a part of Destiny's Bridge.

In January Art4TheHomeless brought you photos, a detailed inside look at Tent City, NJ. Today, Destiny's Bridge taking awareness to the next level. The residents of Tent City are not just homeless bums, as people would think, but they are advocates for one another and each person out there who is homeless, is a homeless survivor, and support civil rights for all.
Destiny's Bridge is about the journey of the Tent City residents, about them standing up to the government who says, "You have to get out," which is something our government has been good at doing since Christopher Columbus landed on our shores back in the 1400's.
