How can you have 20,000 vacant homes and at the same time have so many homeless people? This was a question Jim Carney asked himself as he became involved in Housing and Homelessness. His own family experience, growing up in Pennsylvania, and his education in urban planning led him down a path to begin to address economic reasons that underlie these conditions in society. He is still involved in helping these efforts!
These stories "caught" by StoryCatchers, Betty Louise and Susan M. Davis, inspire inclusion and common humanity with homeless people and promote compassionate action with the community at large. Stories connect us to our humanity. The Humanities, Arts, and Media communicate Story. The result is cultural transformation. This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH, and the California Arts Council. Please visit www.calhum.org, and arts.ca.gov.
