We were approached by an award-winning author who was working on year long report on the subject of family homelessness.
The team had spent the year documenting real life experiences, exploring the various issues that these individuals face, and they needed a visual component to round it out.
Working against a tight deadline, we jumped at the chance to get involved and to help illustrate how real of an issue this is.
The report was recently awarded the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi award by the Society of Professional Journalists in the category of Public Service journalism for its in-depth report on family homelessness in Pierce County.
