I heard about a very special Portland charity through my church, and with a short 5-minute video on their website they captured my heart.
Homelessness. Every day thousands of people across our great country don’t have a place to call home. Homelessness can happen for so many different reasons — job loss, an accident, drug addiction… and kids are caught up in this too. Having a roof over our head is something so many of us take for granted.
Central City Concern has been changing lives for over 40 years by offering housing, job training and so much more to those affected by homelessness. A few weeks ago I had my first family portrait session with two families who are part of the Central City Concern community. Look at these beautiful kids. I hope their parents will always look back on these photos and remember this as a positive turning point in their lives.
In the coming months I’ll be working with Central City Concern to photograph kids & families in their housing program.
