Homeless Exhibit Speaks To You

Posted: Updated:

  A one of kind photography exhibit is now open in the northern valley.  It's called, "Homeless is my address, not my name".

  It's free and open to the public on the corner of Broadway in downtown Crookston. The photography exhibit brings to life the problem of homeless people all around us.

  It's sponsored by the Care and Share Center in Crookston. That Center alone serves 40 homeless people every night, including families.

Carol Gregg, Care & Share Center: "And I think that's what this exhibit shows so amazingly well is that, it could be you or me."

  What makes this exhibit so unique is that many of these photos of homeless folks from Minnesota, include a phone number. You can call it and hear their stories, in their own words.

Homeless Woman: "Honestly, if I could have anything it would just be a little shack. Someplace I could live and not worry about losing my job."

Homeless Man: "At one time I owned my own construction company, until my mental illness started kicking in. That's when I started bouncing around."

Homeless Man: "Actually, from all the stuff I've went through, the struggles I went through in life… is was more than most people experience. You get to a point where you just want to give up."

  The exhibit runs in downtown Crookston through Saturday from one to 5 p.m.. Again, it's free and open to the public.
