Shelter Wanted: Portraits of San Antonio's Homeless

 
For this week's cover story, the Current visited Church Under the Bridge to document the experiences of some of the members of the San Antonio homeless community. This slideshow is a collection of portraits by photographer Josh Huskin of the variety of people we encountered. Read our profile of three homeless people — Francisco Cruz, Lindsay Hayes, and Chanel Valentine — here.
