As one of my favorite projects to date, HAVEN took me into a place outside of my comfort zone. As Lead Editor on the project, it was amazing to learn so much about what we cannot see.
The issue of homelessness is overlooked far too often. Society rarely realizes that the people on the street have a story and a past, and more importantly, they have a future. Our project aims to uncover the struggle the homeless endure, and what it is like to go from living on the streets to working and having a place to call home. We want to shed light on the issue of identity in the homeless community, and by profiling people as they overcome the obstacles that surface when rising above homelessness, we will capture that experience on a first hand basis.
