03 May Planet JH: Giving a Face to the Displaced
The H.U.G. Project shines a light on people one step away from homelessness.
JACKSON HOLE, WY – As 250 residents are evicted from the Virginian Village Apartments, placing affected folks in the community spotlight is increasingly important.
Neomi Garcia and her sons Ventura and Dominic are the recipients of a “community H.U.G.” from the Spread the Love Commission. A nonprofit providing assistance to local and national homeless and displaced people, Spread the Love’s H.U.G. Project stands for Humans United in Giving. “My goal is to put a face to the people who are facing eviction and homelessness in our community,” said Spread the Love founder Wren Fialka.
