Homeless persons tell their stories of loss, hope, and how they survive in the city of Biloxi, Mississippi. Devastated by Hurricane Katrina, Biloxi has a large homeless population but no shelter. Living in the woods, sleeping in cars, or squatting in buildings, these thirteen homeless men and women struggle to retain their dignity and their will to push forward to a better future. This volume draws upon the story of the homeless Lazarus of St. Luke's gospel. Lazarus suffered and died in silence. Though he speaks no word in the Gospel, Lazarus finds a voice here.
