A Place to REST
Fundraising Documentary for Nonprofit Comprehensive Homeless Services
A Place to REST examines REST’s life saving mission as Men’s Shelters on the North Side of Chicago are disappearing. REST was founded in 1979 when a homeless man froze to death in a dumpster and neighbors’ vowed to never let it happen again…but it did blocks from a shelter where there was no room for him.
“When Joyce’s documentary was shown at our Annual Dinner it was movingly clear to the audience that homelessness in Chicago is a matter of life or death...so they dug more deeply into their pockets."
-Michael O’Hara, REST Board President
