Experience life in a homeless camp for one or two hours
Type: Offer something
What we'll do
We'll visit the homeless camp downtown near the riverfront. Several long-time residents there have agreed to share their experiences there and show us what life is really like for them. Reading about the issue or passing it on the street is one thing. Hearing it directly from the source is something else.
We’ll discuss what happens when Salem conduct their routine sweep or purges. Shopping carts, sleeping bags and tents are lost, and they are back to square one. And we’ll have time anything else residents would like to say or you would like to know.
The average person doesn’t understand what it is really like to live in a homeless camp. See the reality of it!
