People avoid eye contact. They step away from you. They don’t answer you if you address them — even if you wish them a good day! It’s painful. It’s debilitating. Over time, it gets worse, not better. There are a lot of bad things about being homeless, but being invisible is the worst!
This is how we know that powerful change can happen when people who are homeless get the chance to tell their stories. You should see someone’s face when they realize another person actually wants to listen to them.
Every human being needs to be seen, heard, and acknowledged. But for homeless people, those who are used to being invisible, being heard can be a big, big deal.
You’ve seen other effective efforts at education and prevention — from anti-smoking to breast cancer, to global warming and more. Now we’re bringing the power of storytelling, education, and awareness to show the truth about homelessness.
This important journey cannot continue without YOUR help. Telling each story, reaching out in city after city, helping each person we can, takes donations from people like you who want to make a difference. Will you please help keep this work going?
