This project is part of Project Horizon, which is a community outreach program for registered nurses at the University of Hartford. In order to increase awareness of the issue of homelessness in CT, a group of men at McKinney Men's Shelter in Hartford will be given disposable cameras with which they can capture their perspective, their struggles, their triumphs...their lives. Many are veterans, and range from teenagers to seniors. These photos will then be displayed in an exhibit in various venues with the intent of spreading education and understanding, but most importantly how the community can help. We need your help to buy the supplies and cameras with which to make this project a reality. Any amount would be greatly appreciated and would go a long way towards helping the shelter.
