Southwest Key Featured in Oscar-Nominated Documentary!

You may not know this, but a Southwest Key facility was featured in a recent HBO documentary, “Which Way Home”, that was just nominated for an Oscar in the category of Best Documentary Feature category!!

The film highlights the journey of four unaccompanied minors that travel from Central America to the United States.

One of those youth, Kevin, becomes a client at one of our shelters and part of the film was in fact shot in that shelter.

We were happy to be able to help the filmmakers, and are very excited that the documentary was nominated for an Oscar. Congratulations to Rebecca Cammisa (the director) and we hope her documentary wins!
