Addressing Homelessness in Birmingham
In the February 2014 issue of B-Metro, The Magazine of Birmingham Metro Living, Photographer Eric Dejuan asks some of Birmingham’s homeless if he can take their photos — and hear their stories. The result is an informative, accurate depiction of the lives of many lving on the streets in the Birmingham area.
Aletheia House Executive Director Chris Retan was interviewed for the article and was given the opportunity to share information about the “Housing-First” model, an innovative approach designed to aid homeless individuals and families. Aletheia House is currently working to implement this model in Birmingham through the Hope for Heroes program, funded by a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
