When J.R., the cofounder of the Facing Project hung up the phone after his call-in NPR interview about the Facing Project, I looked at him and said, “This just got real.”
And it had.
It’s one thing to have an idea in your head and it’s a whole other thing when others take that idea and run with it. Ft. Wayne is our first Facing Community to complete a project (4 other communities have projects underway). They’ve had art exhibits on Homelessness, this Thursday they’re reading monologues, and the Mayor of Ft. Wayne has even declared Thursday Facing Homelessness day.
I can’t wait to be a part of the event on Thursday.
