Homelessness impacts much more than just a select few. Whether it’s having to live next to I-5 to students couch-surfing and using the UW Food Pantry, many have experienced housing and food insecurity and homelessness in our community.

Photojournalist Jaya Harrell and contributing photojournalist Ramon Hernandez traversed the U-District, speaking to and photographing people who were experiencing homelessness near the UW. These are the people they met and the environments they saw.
