I volunteered last Saturday with a homeless outreach called, “Don’t Walk By” where we scoured the streets of Harlem searching for those that needed shelter, emotional support, help or just a warm plate of food. They set up base at a local church, send out teams of volunteers that do a few many different things. They have a transportation team that goes around and picks up those homeless that are incapable of walking, or just need assistance in getting to the base church. They have a hospitality team that interacts with the homeless to find out what has been troubling them, and just lending them an ear to hear their stories. They have a street team (which I joined) and we walked around our area searching for the homeless to speak with, and there is also a subway team that goes and rides around in the subways looking for people who need help as well. It was an enormously uplifting event and they are doing them for 6 weeks- every Saturday. Check them out here. I served as their volunteer photographer as well, but mostly ended up talking to people (and my awesome team) more than shooting- just so happened that way.
