On Saturday, December 7, photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists and volunteers gave homeless men, women and children a special gift. To celebrate the Fifth Annual Help-Portrait, volunteers offered makeovers and photo portraits to the residents of Pasadena-based Union Station Homeless Services – just in time for the holidays.
Pasadena's Help-Portrait took place at Centennial Place, a 142-unit SRO (single room occupancy) apartment building, run in partnership by Union Station and Abode Communities. Residents of Union Station's shelters and apartments were treated to a very special make over and photo shoot.
"This picture will actually join [my family] closer together so that they can recognize me as their grandfather and as a person of society," said one past Help Portrait participant.
