HOMELESS IN CANBERRA
We have a half hour special on homelessness this week.
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
1. FIRST PERSON – one man’s story of life on the streets – and his redemption through the love of the woman who became his wife and the mother of his young daughter.
2. FRONT LINE – One street worker introduces Chris Kimball to three men who have nowhere to live. They all open up to him about their lives – and their need for respect as much as a roof.
3. THE SERVICES – What’s available – money is being cut from a number of services – whilst new kid on the block Common Ground – is getting new funding.
4. SOLUTIONS – Andrew Penfold puts his mind and heart towards some big picture solutions. (CEO of the Indigenous Education Foundation)
