"Lindsey House" Debuts New Area for Children, Welcomes Guest with Special Surprise

Posted: Updated:
Downtown Tulsa - A transitional living facility debuted a new area for children of women recovering from situational homelessness Friday. It also welcomed award-winning photojournalist Linda Solomon for a "Pictures of Hope" program for the kids.

Lindsey House is currently helping 10 women work toward self-sufficiency in an 18-month program. There are currently 21 children living there with them.

Staff, volunteers, and donors debuted the new "Hardesty Child Enrichment Center" where children can do their homework, play, and do art projects. 

"Most of the time we don't really have anything to do,and so we just try to make up things in the hallway and end up making messes and stuff. So, it's good we have a new place to play," said Jyllian Eddy, 12.


Later in the morning, Lindsey House welcomed Solomon and her photography program. 10 children between the ages of five and 14 took part. Children are asked to visualize their hopes and dreams, then photograph those ideas in the community with mentors. 


The program surprised the children with their own professional digital cameras to keep.
