Amber Dinh has been an advocate for educating others about homelessness for years but finally found her authentic voice by creating a Facebook page and a community in Denver to follow her meeting homeless in the front range of Colorado called Facing Homelessness – Denver. She spend her time feeding, clothing and talking to people who otherwise may be overlooked as people hurry through their day.
Amber specifically aligned herself with the “Just say Hello” movement after meeting and following an inspiring man named Rex Holbein through his journey of creating the original Facing Homelessness in Seattle, Washington, Since starting Facing homelessness Denver, she has had the opportunity to meet and befriend hundreds of homeless in Colorado and share their unique stories and photos with the world. By sharing what she witnessed in her days serving the homeless community, her Facebook page has now reach nearly 1000 people across the United States that leave greetings for homeless and gifts someone homeless may need to feel better in the elements and this networked community works through her to make smiles happen on homeless faces year-round.
“I know that there no simple answers or fixes to the homeless crisis but I do know that a community of people in any city across the world can make a local impact on people living outside.“
