“Think love is hard? Try keeping a relationship going while homeless.
Homelessly in Love, a documentary shot in the District of Columbia, aims to show the full picture of homelessness, joy and heartbreak and all. Since 2015, we have followed the lives of five men and women as they go through love pangs, dramatic breakups — and the humdrum of married life.

Each of them — Alyssa and Marvin, Lorraine and Freddie, and Michelle — have also struggled with housing instability.  Their voyages tell universal love stories while shedding a light on the deep emotional impact of homelessness.
We have gotten very far thanks to our local partners: Street Sense, Washington D.C.’s only newspaper featuring homeless voices, and the Humanities Council of Washington, D.C. through a $15,000 Open Humanities grant.
But now, we need your help to cross the finish line. Today we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the rest of our post-production costs, including editing, color correction, music composition, and all the costs associated with submissions to festivals and distribution.
We also want to give back to the community of artists and activists who have contributed to Homelessy in Love. One fifth of all donations will go towards the purchase of concrete essentials for our protagonists, like furniture or clothes; or equipment for our soundtrack musicians, who have all been through homelessnesss at some point in their lives.
