    Bethesda Center’s “That’s Home”

    Here is a flashback to a project done earlier this year. Because of its innovation and creativity, it deserves recognition on this site.

    In March of 2008, homeless residents at the Bethesda Center of Winston-Salem, a local shelter, shot photographs of their makeshift dwellings. Participants snapped pictures that communicated “home” for them. The project intended to dispel negative opinions of homelessness and create a better understanding of what a homeless existence is really like.

    This black and white show titled “Home” doubly served as a fundraiser for the Bethesda Center in May of this year. Money raised helped fund the Center’s Project Homecoming, which helps clients at the shelter ease the transition from shelter life to independent living by providing them with basic necessities for their new lives.

    Here is the Winston-Salem Journal’s full story.
