5 for 5 SPY Stories

As part of his "5for5" project, talented photographer Russ Quackenbush came to Safe Place for Youth's Drop-In Center and took portraits of the homeless young people that we serve. He beautifully captured each individual's story through their portrait and a series of five questions, all within 5 minutes.

Here, we invite you to discover the dreams and the resiliency of the youth who inspire us daily. Each week, a new story will be featured on this website. All of the portraits can be viewed in person at SPY's Gala on Sunday June 4, 2017. To purchase tickets and for more information on the event, visit: HERE
