Off the Grid, a photography project that showcases photographs of Lynn taken by clients from Lynn Shelter Association, was a six-month labor of love. Clients were mentored by professional photographers who showed them how to use digital cameras and some techniques in capturing the shots they want. After their mentoring sessions, the newly trained photographers explored Lynn with a camera and captured some incredibly beautiful images. The words and images in this book have been on exhibit around the Commonwealth, including at the Massachusetts State House, and reflect the unique courage, humor and creative potential of the homeless people we serve.

Special thanks to Susan Ogan and Karen Bowden for their help in making this project a success!

Cummings Foundation $100K for 100 Grants Program

Lynn Shelter Association was the proud recipient of a Cummings Foundation $100K for $100 grant awarded in 2015. The Cummings Foundation grant has allowed Lynn Shelter Association to operate its emergency shelter 24/7 during the winter months so our most vulnerable neighbors in Lynn can remain warm and dry.
