Mission Statement

Our mission is to remove the negative stereotype attributed to those living without shelter. By focusing on the beauty of each person through imagery, storytelling, and community building we aim to humanize the issue of homelessness as a means to ending it.

Description

Facing Homelessness uses visual storytelling and art advocacy to build a new awareness about our relationship to homelessness, believing that we can better address the issue when all of the community is involved. Facing Homelessness is dedicated to showing the beauty of each person living on the street, believing that when you take the time to get to know someone that is living outside you can break through the negative stereotype associated with homelessness. And when you see that person'’s true beauty you can open your compassion and create a new connection of friendship. It is this connection of friendship that is transformative to all of us as we reach out to address the complexity of this issue.
