Once a week, Turning Pages director Chris Mathews spends a few hours at the Transitions shelter in downtown Columbia. Through this partnership, Turning Pages provides literacy services to any interested residents at the shelter.
Last Saturday, Transitions hosted “A Walk in Our Shoes.” Residents of Transitions gave walking tours of downtown Columbia, sharing a different perspective than one might usually see. Chris took the tour and snapped a few photos.
These two, below, are places where homeless people sometimes sleep.
