Like most Americans, Steve had a home, a good job and a hobby—helping homeless people. Now Steve is the minister of 'Tent City', and his home is a little tent in the woods of New Jersey. All sorts of people live in this community. Some are homeless because they lost their jobs. Others are employed, but still couldn't afford to keep their homes. Nevertheless, they haven't lost their hope for a better future. They're fighting to protect 'Tent City' against the local government that wants to demolish it.
