University of West Georgia's Xiaojuan Christian, visual services specialist in University Communications and Marketing, has spent the past year chronicling Carrollton's homeless.

Unlike a traditional homeless shelter, HOPE Center is a communal home and transition program for homeless men located in Carrollton, Georgia. Since opening in January 2008, it has helped hundreds of men transition out of homelessness and back into independent living.
