FOX 34 Interview

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Teams of volunteers share a meal and listen to the stories of homeless people in Lubbock.

"Hearing the Homeless" is an Austin based non-profit aimed at spreading hope and love to people who are struggling. Founder Kevin Price said it focuses on connection and humanizing people whose stories need to be heard.

"It really opens up people's hearts to want to help that individual. I think that homelessness is such a huge issue, and whenever you look at it as a homeless issue, it's just a complex thing, but whenever you look at it as a human, then it's a lot simpler," he said.

Price said he intends to build a crowd-funding platform that will allow homeless people's stories and donate to a virtual account that will help perpetuate the program.
