After some photography lessons, kids living in shelter at the Tacoma Rescue Mission were asked to write down their hopes and dreams. Then they took to the streets of downtown Tacoma to capture images representing those hopes and dreams.
One photo from each child will be selected to be featured in our Pictures of Hope photo exhibition at the Museum of Glass.
These photos will also be available during a donation auction, with ALL proceeds going directly to programs and facilities at the Tacoma Rescue Mission!
