The Facing Project

April 15 - 19 at 7:30am during Morning Edition and 5:30pm during All Things Considered

This week, WBOI is teaming up with The Facing Project—a grassroots initiative which pairs local authors with people living in homelessness right here in Fort Wayne.

The authors worked to create stories based on their time spent with the homeless which aim to shed light on their often unheard struggles.

You can hear the Facing Project during Morning Edition at 7:30AM and during All Things Considered at 5:30PM. All of the stories have been produced by WBOI's Sarah Delia.
