Summary
Starting Over focuses on the future to help kids who cannot go home realize and consider their options. Viewers hear advice from runaways who have dropped out of school and are struggling to get off the streets, off drugs, and out of prostitution. Residents and counselors at homeless shelters paint a vivid picture of life at the shelter - the rules they enforce, the assistance they provide, and the success they have in helping teens overcome their problems. Outreach workers and counselors discuss the alternatives that are available and help those with no hope, those with jail records, and those trapped by drugs and/or prostitution see that there are ways to start their lives over, and get off the streets and on with their lives.
