Project Description

Nobody should have to be homeless. Anything that addresses the needs of this vulnerable segment of our population is highly important and significant. The issues of post-secondary students facing homelessness, in particular, have not been carefully addressed, and are important to understand and alleviate. The workshop outlined in this proposal will help Lethbridge College to address this issue by deepening our insight into the challenges of poverty among our student population, increasing community awareness of the issues and barriers faced by our vulnerable student population, and mobilizing the community to creatively address the needs of our students.
