You Can See the Homeless People Everywhere

Singer/Songwriter Terry Worden shares the experience of when he felt compelled to show up to work at the overnight cold weather shelter for the homeless folks in Nevada City, California. He was so inspired by the way the community volunteers, led by Janice O’Brien from Sierra Roots, served these people. He shifted his own perspectives about homelessness, and went home and wrote a song, "You Can See the People.”

About the project:

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. Visit
