One of many community projects from Anderson University’s Communications department includes a video documentary named, “Homelessness in Anderson.” Over the course of several weeks, students from COM 451 collected footage, interviewed people, walked the streets and listened intently to those who helped tell the story of homelessness in our city.
Thanks to the crew who put this together: Jeremy Thompson (editor and camera operator), Simon Loftus (Director), Asa Waters (Producer), and Raheem Jenkins (co-editor). Our prayer is that this documentary spoke into their lives as an experience they won’t forget. Jeremy, Simon, and Asa invested many hours meeting with HOPE Missions volunteers and visitors. We were impressed with their eagerness to learn — far beyond just completing a project for school. The conversations covered a wide area and we’re sure it was difficult to distill the story down to a 20-minute video!
Many thanks to Bobby Rettew, Professor & Entrepreneur, for his leadership and guidance that made this project possible. We’re indebted to Bobby for his loving support!
May God use this documentary to soften the hearts of those who encounter anyone experiencing homelessness.
