The homeless children we serve at our Hospitality House gathered together and received a photo tutorial from award winning photojournalist Linda Solomon. As a part of the Picture of Hope program, the children had the opportunity to write down their hopes and dreams for the future. They were presented with a digital camera and traveled around Tucson with a mentor to take pictures that represent their hopes and dreams. These pictures were featured in an exhibit in November and the youth and their families joined in the celebration. Each child received one enlarged print of one of their photos as an inspirational keepsake.
