GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Dégagé Ministries is partnering with Downtown Grand Rapids to raise awareness for the rise in homelessness in the city.

Project Hope is an exhibition at the Grand Rapids World of Winter festival that showcases “stories and hope from Dégagé patrons,” according to Clark Communications.

They say the pandemic has played a role in the increase of homelessness, adding that Dégagé wants to educate residents about the difficulties relating to homelessness.

We’re told Project Hope will be on display through Feb. 26.
