We’d like to introduce you to About Face Charlotte, a photographic and storytelling project that gives voice to the voiceless in our community. Their mission is to share the stories of some of our neighbors…some of the nearly 150,000 people in Mecklenburg County who are living in poverty. Their stories help connect people to people, and help us all remember to care for each other.
The team behind About Face CLT, Hannah Blanton and Scott Gardner, had the desire to create this awareness project for the Charlotte community focusing on our neighbors in need. They are encouraging us all to Love, Listen and Serve those who live amongst us. Help them connect and care for our community. Read about the statistics, look at the photos of our neighbors and listen to their stories. Hannah and Scott are hoping it will cause a Shift In Your Soul!
“Smilin’ & Wavin’: Moses begins his street ministry, standing on the street corner smiling and waving at people as they drive by, and preaching to them when they stop at the light.”
With the help of MeckFUSE and Urban Ministry, Moses was able to leave the woods and get a furnished apartment. Click here to read Moses’ story and hear about his inspiring tale of turning tragedy into an uplifting gift to the world.
Visit About Face CLT to meet some other neighbors and hear their story.
