The Homeless in Indianapolis

This past Tuesday, I had the privilege of tagging along with some new friends from Hazelwood Christian Church (in Clayton, Indiana) on their weekly route to feed the homeless in downtown Indianapolis.  It was heartwarming to see the resilience and resourcefulness of the human spirit to overcome adversities of life, and at the same time, I felt so overwhelmed as I was reminded of the enormity of the task to end homelessness.  So many needs gone unmet, and so many rules and regulations, or lack of planning of the city officials, that hinder these needs from being met.

Here are some of the people I’ve met.  Being the first time I’ve gone there, I’ve barely been able to get to know some of their names.  I hope to continue to visit and develop a friendship with them, learn more about them, and share their stories with you in future posts.

I have posted more pictures in an album on my Facebook page, with more details.  It is a public album, so you can see it even if you do not have a Facebook account.  But if you want to comment on the photos, you will need to have a FB account. I look forward to hearing your comments and interacting with you on my Facebook page, if you wish to do so.
