"Homelessness" is a class of people created by the main stream society! More specifically, "homelessness" is a symptom of a society that is sick and dysfunctional. I began developing this concept for a new nonprofit while in the Minneapolis shelter system. So, I speak as one member of this population, during the beginning years of development of this Project.
We are the people most abused, the most traumatized, the most damaged, the most scarred in our community. We are not all of the people with these symptoms of a sick society! So therefore, the pool of potential "homeless" people is full of those living one paycheck away from being on the street, or living in ones car or van, staying in the shelter system,
doubling up with friends or family, or camping in the parks or other areas.
