MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A new Hennepin County exhibit strives to make sure that homeless people are not faceless.

“Homeless Is My Address, Not My Name” opens Monday in the skyway level of the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis. It runs through April 30.

The exhibit features portraits and audio stories of people who have been homeless. It is presented by St. Stephen’s Human Services in partnership with Heading Home Hennepin and Family Housing Fund.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Hennepin County Office to End Homelessness and Heading Home Hennepin.
