VALIANT VOICES: Portraits of Strength
On-street Take-overValiant Voices: Portraits of Strength cuts through the clutter of what you think you might know about what it means to live an everyday struggle with poverty.
This PHOTO PROJECT, supported by the Women’s Fund of Omaha and in partnership with the Heart Ministry Center, showcases the experiences of nine Omaha women living on the edge of economic security as they fight to support themselves and their families.
Learn about the barriers to self-sufficiency that must be overcome for many Omahans and what we can do to help clear the way for hard-working Nebraskans to break the cycle of poverty.See their photography in windows at:
