Open house to bring awareness of homeless
The United Way of Douglas and Pope Counties will host an open house on Thursday, December 12 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the United Way office in Alexandria.
The open house will present an audio/photo exhibit on homelessness in Minnesota that will also be on display at United Way’s office through Tuesday, December 31. It is presented by Heading Home Minnesota.
The photos and stories were collected from people who have experienced homelessness in Minnesota.
Selected photos will include a phone number that visitors can call to hear the person in the photo tell his or her story, beginning with their name and where they stayed last night.
