Hoping Against Hope: The Homeless People Project

Record #:
Durham resident Edie Cohn works on the Homeless People Project to give Durham’s homeless individuals a face and voice. Cohn spends one day each week at Durham’s Community Shelter for HOPE sketching one individual and recording his or her life’s story. Cohn hopes to publish and book and turn the drawings and interviews into a traveling exhibit. The stories and portraits of eight homeless persons from Durham are included in the article.
