Supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, this oral history project with the goal to record unique life histories of Picture the Homeless. This project emerged from a recognition by the members, staff and board of Picture the Homeless of the need to document the work of the organization as a strategy to orient new members and staff coming into the work, as well as to share lessons learned with other grass roots organizing efforts; particularly those led by homeless people. In 2018-19, a web-based repository will be created for the six new interviews conducted as well as the existing seventeen interviews, incorporating the organizational archive.
