Emerging Leader Initiates Dialogue and Healing Through Feature Documentary

“No one knows how it feels to walk in my shoes.” Those words struck a chord with Gloria Craig during a conversation with a resident of Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry’s (LMM) “The Men’s Shelter at 2100” who was facing barriers as he was trying to re-enter after incarceration.

After prayerful consideration, Craig wanted to tell his story and put a face to a name while exploring the plight of those facing homelessness in Cleveland, Ohio, through a short film. As a sociology major from Wittenburg University, Craig has little experience with filmmaking. However, she relies on her belief that God led her to exactly where she needs to be.

We work hand in hand with Christian nonprofits to end poverty, violence, and inequality in our communities. Take action today and raise up those in need.
