In 2014, the film Gimme Shelter was produced and released in movie theaters to worldwide audiences. This film was based on the true story of the work of Several Sources Shelters and the coming of age story of one of their teens (played by Vanessa Hudgens) turned away by her father (played by Brendan Fraser) because of her decision to have her child. The film portrays her courageously seeking shelter as she struggles to survive. A Priest (played by James Earl Jones), refers her to Several Sources where she bonds with a diverse group of teenage girls and a Housemother (the Kathy DiFiore character played by Anne Dowd) dedicated to helping them all.
Ronald Krauss directed, produced and wrote Gimme Shelter, which was shown in 55 countries around the world including China, Japan, India, South Africa, Poland, Brazil. Gimme Shelter was screened at the UN on September 11, 2014.
The film is currently being used by Youth Groups, Educational Institutions and Churches bringing it’s uplifting message that “there is always hope” to young people and their parents. Gimme Shelter is frequently shown on Cable TV stations throughout the US and in other countries.
