What to Display Alongside Voices of Homeless?

I Get By with a Little Help from My Friends is nearly ready to begin asking homeless people to voice their thoughts on a number of topics, both mundane and important. If you have a home and are reading these thoughts displayed in public places: what other information would you like to have, framing the voice? A list of actions you can take to help? More information about the project? A website you can go to for more information? Facts about homelessness? What’s the balance of enough information and too much information?

And what functions should be allowed or enabled with each image?
