A local newspaper written by the homeless is one of the many programs endorsed by Doors of Hope in Memphis.
Each Wednesday, they hold a writers workshop to write stories for “The Bridge.”
“Writing helps me think, “said Kimberly, one of the residents at Doors of Hope who has been a part of the writing team for six months.
CeCe, another resident, has been a part of the writing workshops since they began.
“It gives me a sense of purpose,” CeCe said.
Doors of Hope is a nonprofit dedicated to changing the lives of homeless in Memphis through a variety of programs including their monthly newspaper, permanent housing for 52 residents, medication, job training, resume workshops and even job placement.
