Capturing Help: Photographer Drawn to Chelsea Looked for Hope, Helpers

Dozens of volunteers pass through the offices of the Chelsea Collaborative each week to pack boxes and distribute food to families in need and to represent Chelsea in political actions. “This is my family,” is a refrain from volunteers, almost all of whom have families at home. The work of the Collaborative is a model of comprehensive community organizing, and invites everyone to be a part of effective change, something greater than themselves.
