*Everyone Deserves a Home

Event detail
 

This exhibition tells the story through photos and oral histories of the journey for Californians living in permanent supportive housing in San Francisco. All the subjects were previously homeless with significant health issues prior to finding their current home.  The exhibition explores the question of what drew people to San Francisco, what led them to their current home and what their community means to them. It provides an opportunity for the audience to reflect on their own experience of coming to San Francisco and the value they place on their home and community. The goal of the project is to highlight the gap in understanding between public perception of San Francisco’s homeless population and the actual rich and compelling history of our fellow San Franciscans. This exhibit is sponsored by Delivering Innovation in Supportive Housing (DISH) and the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library and California Humanities.

Main Library, Latino-Hispanic Community Room and
