“Home.” is a 12-part limit-series documenting the homelessness crisis in North Dakota. The series examines causes of homelessness, and the individuals affected. The premiere of “Home.” explores the myths surrounding homelessness and the right to housing. The premiere also introduces some of the organizations working to combat homelessness in North Dakota. The rest of the series is scheduled to be released early in 2019.
