HLP Student Project Puts Face on Durham’s Homeless

Students in Alex Harris’ Documentary Engagement class recently completed an ambitious collaboration with clients of Durham non-profit Housing for New Hope.  Housing for New Hope provides outreach and crisis assistance, transitional housing and permanent housing for Durham’s homeless population.  The final product of this collaboration–created through the service-learning component of the class–was a multimedia website documenting the stories of individuals who benefited from Housing for New Hope’s programming.  The audio slideshows produced by students were used as part of a December fundraiser for the organization.
