An Introduction to Homelessness

EMC is getting more involved with our homeless neighbors. There is much we don’t understand about homelessness, yet and much that we will experience with them. But a good place for us all to start before we begin helping houseless folks is this video. Ryan Dowd has worked with homeless folks in need for decades and shares his learned experiences with librarians. However, this video isn’t just for librarians! It’s for day shelter workers, night shelter volunteers, neighbors or people who live in the same town as houseless folks! it’s a half hour well spent!
