How might we encourage homeless individuals living in Calgary to move towards a more stable life through community initiatives and involvement?
This piece was the result of a research project on homelessness in Calgary.
This project required me to explore issues surrounding homelessness through critical and system thinking, in order to discover the true cause of homelessness in our city. The process began with an in depth analysis of Calgary’s current homeless population, which was followed by interviews with industry professionals, that inevitably led to the creation of my system map. I discovered a deep passion for understanding the true cause of homelessness and how we as a community can make a change in the system moving forward.
