HOLA on YouTube

BenFor the past six months, Ben Simpson has been volunteering his time documenting the goings on at HOLA. Whether, it’s an art show opening or the annual Community Graduation, Ben can be found on campus with his gear on his back and a smile on his face. Over the past several months, he has really captured the true essence of HOLA and the kids that we serve.

Ben call himself a “street photographer.” He loves to wander the streets, documenting the people and places he encounters. That’s how he found HOLA and how lucky for us! When Ben isn’t volunteering his time at HOLA, he works as a professional photographer, shooting weddings, events, parties and sports teams. He loves to travel, hike and ride his motorcycle. Ben especially enjoys his time at HOLA. “Everyone’s always enjoying themselves. The kids are learning and love being there. It seems to inspire them to do more.”

Thanks, Ben for helping us tell the HOLA story!
