The Esperanza Community Photovoice Project recruited residents to take photos of their daily lives and identify the issues that are most pressing for their community. These residents have shared their voices in this project as a way to communicate with those who might not otherwise hear them. This photography project is a strategy for TOOF to amplify their voices and call attention to their lived experiences.

This is a speaker box that I’ve been working on restoring. It’s not complete, but it’s something I’ve been working on to do something positive for the people here. I had a speaker in there and it was substantially loud. This is a personal passion project for me. Music has always been my passion– I like music, I’ve written music, I’ve seen music, and I put this together because it’s also an occupation that I want to do.
MY VIEW OF THE WORLD
THE LONG WALK
Some days I look at the walk to the bathroom and want to cry. Accomplishing the most basic of tasks can be a Herculean effort. To the non-disabled, please step into my long walk.

Two donated canopies provide a much needed shelter for common areas. Good, clean common areas are essential to community building.
