This short video captures the stories of community members in Whitehorse who have lived experience of homelessness in Whitehorse. Of course we know the issue is urgent and we also know that numbers of those who are homeless continues to rise. This video offers their perspective on the issue and most importantly, their solutions.
A collaborative initiative between the Yukon Anti Poverty Coalition, Skookum Jim Friendship Centre, Blood Ties Four Directions Centre and funded by Yukon Housing Corporation, it is hoped that this project will offer a different perspective on a solvable crisis. The Yukon Anti Poverty Coalition strongly believes we can END homelessness now.
Thanks also to GBP Creative and ak Studios for your vision and commitment and also to all those individuals who shared their experience in focus groups and workshops to help make this video possible.
