Homelessness: Miami's shadow city

  • 3 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Although their numbers have shrunk, South Florida's homeless remain a visible and vulnerable city unto themselves. These men, women and children often are afflicted by a combination of drugs, alcohol, poverty and mental illness. The chronic ones routinely refuse shelter, usually because of addictions or because they have grown accustomed to being off the grid. The luckier ones, like Tyrone Odom, find solace in spirituality and safe shelter in places like the Miami Rescue Mission.
