Homeless at Home, a collaboration between Mojdeh Baratloo, Clifton Balch, Rebecca Martin, Glenn Weiss and Kyong Park, began in 1984 as a collective endeavor to attract attention to the plight of the rapidly-growing number of homeless people in New York City. This group of artists and architects participating in Homeless at Home undertook to use artistic practice as a means of social action and engagement. Portraits of the Poor, a series of photographs by Nancy Miller Elliot documenting the everyday life of New York’s homeless, was a typical example of the works produced and exhibited by the group.
