A Day in the Life of Homelessness Tours
For the 2013 Homelessness Action Week, the Lookout Society is focusing on public awareness by offering tours of some of our facilities. The tours will visit a shelter, transitional housing and supportive housing. Along the way, Lookout staff will speak about the stages many people walk through and the support needed as they step out of life on the streets and into their own homes.
At each location visited, a photo art installation will be on display. The images capture “A day in the life of homelessness” and were taken by Lookout clients.
The tours take place Saturday, Oct. 19 and run for two hours. The first tour starts at 10 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m. Snacks will be served and transportation is provided.
