Children of homeless families were surprised with a digital camera at the Nashville Rescue Mission on Monday.

The cameras were part of an annual and national program called “Pictures of Hope”.  It is a collaboration between photographer Linda Solomon and Chevrolet.

The aim is to send the children who reside at the mission on a photography assignment to capture pictures that reveal their hopes and dreams.

According to a release by the Nashville Rescue Mission, each child was paired with a volunteer mentor to go out and about and take pictures.

The kids and their art will be honored at a Meet The Young Artist reception in November.

Their photographs will be used on holiday cards and sold through the Nashville Rescue Mission.

The proceeds will benefit all of the mothers and children who receive the mission's services.
