This time in the life of our organization marks a new season. We took a break from stories to reorganize our vision and our commitment to the community. Over the past few months we continued to collect and transcribe interviews, receive and distribute donations for the homeless community, and think through the next steps for People Seeing People. We remain committed to sharing stories from those in the homeless community and those who support the community. While taking a step back from the public platform, we brainstormed avenues for how People Seeing People can learn from the stories we disseminate and seek to create change at a preliminary level. These changes include using our educational backgrounds to research, write, and implement curriculum in schools with a focus on food insecurity, needs and wants, access to resources, developing relationships, and more. Stay tuned for more information. We will continue with our stories starting next week. Together, we must embrace our differences and seek to understand others through stories, perspectives, and empathy.
We also want to take a moment to recognize a few milestones our organization captured over the course of the last year. Thirteen months ago we posted our first story. Since that time 24 stories captured the perspectives and lives of those currently experiencing homelessness, those who experienced homelessness in the past, and those who support the homeless community. These stories comprised 821 recorded minutes or over 13 hours of interviewing and over 52 hours of transcribing interviews. We remain committed and passionate about denormalizing homelessness in our community by sharing stories.
With Sincere Gratitude,
People Seeing People
