A different kind of friendship.

First published in 2006, Same Kind of Different as Me tells the true story of an unlikely friendship between well-to-do art dealer Ron Hall and Denver Moore, a man whose life began in brutally oppressive conditions on a Louisiana plantation. At the urging of Ron’s late wife Deborah, the men met at Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County, a Fort Worth homeless shelter that was more than the physical location that brought them together – it was the spiritual catalyst for the book’s story of hope, healing and change.

A New York Times best-seller, the book has been adapted as a movie. After almost a decade spent working to make sure the story on the screen reflects the truth of Ron, Denver and Deborah, Same Kind of Different as Me will open in limited release in October 2017.
