TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - This last weekend children who are living in the New Beginnings housing program got the opportunity to participate in the 4th annual 'Pictures of Hope' program.

Linda Solomon, an award winning photojournalist and author returned for her fourth year to bring 'Pictures of Hope' to Tucson.

Several children participated in the program, made possible with some help from O'Reilly Chevrolet and several other volunteers, including Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild.

Solomon provided a photography lesson to the children participating in the program.  One of the participants, who has been in the program for the last three years got a bonus, she got to be Solomon's photo assistant and helped teach the other children in the tutorial.
