From the Director

I, too, wondered if I could not become homeless. For some time I had been no good at anything. I am nearly forty years old...

Eventually, the idea of giving up everything crossed my mind. But instead of becoming a street beggar and rely solely on donations for survival, I decided to become a museum director and turn my home into a museum. But your home does not look like a museum, my friends said. It will, I said, and named it the Homeless Museum.

Homelessness begins at home.
