Affordable Housing Awareness Week 2014

These are some images from last year's AHAW held back in early summer 2014.  This week long event not only works to raise awareness about the need for safe affordable housing, but also provides volunteer opportunities for people to help out one of the many non-profit housing organizations in Richmond.  For the last several years, I have been lucky enough to go around and document the participation of the many student, corporate and community leaders who involve themselves in AHAW.  Part of the event is Walking in Their Shoes, where community leaders spend a day on the streets of Richmond navigating the challenges faced by the homeless in the area.  A few of the images from the week are below.
