Everyone has a story to tell. The voices of our neighbors who have or are currently experiencing homelessness are important. This project elevates these voices who may have been silenced, ignored, or misunderstood in the past. The Facing Homelessness in La Crosse project encourages mutual vulnerability, empathy and trust. It connects project members human to human. The stories of our neighbors were respectfully collected by Western Technical College students, published into stories by University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students, and will be brought to life on stage by Viterbo University students. However, the stars of the project are the nine brave storytellers who lived the experience and are willing to share it.
