‘The Heart of America’: Helping Homeless Kids Survive the Streets

The United States is home to millions of interesting and inspiring people who work to have a positive impact in their communities — often times far from the glare of the media spotlight.

They are the subject of The Heart of America, a new short video series from TheBlaze Documentary Films.

Terry O’Connell is a former corporate executive who left his career to dedicate his life to helping the homeless. O’Connell works on the advisory board of the “Star House,” a 24-hour drop-in center for homeless youth in Columbus, Ohio.

Now in its 10th year, the Star House is a partnership between government, academia and private citizens that offers hot meals, laundry facilities and other basics to children in the streets.
