These stories and portraits were captured by the founder of Humanity Showers, Jordan Verdin. Jordan believes that storytelling is a way to build bridges and provide dignity. Dignifying storytelling contributes to creating inferences and information that can dismantle stereotypes and biases associated with folks who are experiencing homelessness.
Jordan has been photographing and interviewing people experiencing homelessness since 2014. Jordan intends to interview someone experiencing homelessness in each US state to better understand the complexities of homelessness and how to create innovative solutions geared to supporting those in need.
