Maslow Project's community supporters never fail to amaze us with their generosity, and with the many ways they help support the homeless youth and families we serve. Take Medford photographer Kristen Beck (Kristen Beck Images of Life here on Facebook). This year, Kristen is donating her services to take senior portraits for several Maslow youth - a wonderful gift for these hard-working students who might otherwise have had to miss out on participating in this senior year tradition!

We are so thankful for Kristen - and all of our other wonderful community supporters who make our work possible!
