This documentary is a must see for those in the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) and Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) Network. American Winter tells the interwoven stories of eight families living in and around Portland, Oregon. Each family calls a nonprofit referral organization in search of help with paying bills, finding housing, or getting advice on how to weather the current financial downturn. This documentary sheds light on the important role our networks and programs play in helping America’s most vulnerable achieve self-sufficiency.
American Winter will premier Monday, March 18, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO. To view the trailer, visit: http://americanwinterfilm.com/American_Winter/HOME.html
