Homeless people show their "homes" and share personal insights... candid and compelling stories.
It can happen to anyone. No one plans to become homeless.

Joppa helps homeless people survive, get housing and thrive. Our mission is to create a community of unconditional love, support and hope for the homeless as we work together to end homelessness.
Joppa is a volunteer-driven, faith-based, interdenominational, nonprofit organization in Des Moines, Iowa.
Each week, Joppa volunteers visit 100 – 200 people living under bridges, in tents, shacks and vehicles in Polk County.
Joppa fills gaps in community services and meets unmet needs, such as homeless nutrition, street nursing, job training, transportation and survival programs like winter heat and boots.
Joppa carries out its mission entirely on private donations from individuals, families, churches, and other organizations. As of March 2016, Joppa has helped nearly 250 individuals and families get off the streets with volunteer help and private donations.
More than 92% of these men, women and children remain in housing. Praise God!
