Editorial Reviews

Due primarily to the economic recession, a growing number of people are finding themselves in a position they never imagined: homeless.

Nashville, TN is home to a fast rising tent city population. With a shelter system that cannot support even 1 out of 5 of the city's homeless population, most people have nowhere to go. Nearly 100 homeless individuals have come together to form Nashville's Tent City, which is located under a bridge close to the city's center. Tent City, U.S.A. explores this community, which is self-sustained and self-governed. The camp has it's own council, composed of eight camp residents who meet once a week to discuss residents' issues.

For the first time in Nashville history, the municipally run Homeless Commission has opened one seat on its Council to a resident of Tent City. Four people from Tent City have decided to run for the position and one elected resident will have the opportunity to spearhead the search for new land for a transitional camp for the homeless, a new Tent City.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good documentary about a homeless camp in Nashville November 11, 2013
By Lynn
Format:DVD
I watched this last night via Netflix and highly recommend it. About a large homeless camp in Nashville, focusing on the people in it so we get to know them. Gives you a real feeling for who they are and what they need. Also, unfortunately, how extreme the prejudice is against them. I have great respect for the church people who are helping them.
