Radio Show - Homeless Incentive
I was joined by a panel, which included: Horace, Travis, Nicole and Josh. The topic of today's radio show was youth homelessness. To start off the broadcast, Travis who is the founder of the homeless incentive gave multiple facts as to how youth in Toronto become homeless: i.e abusive homes, drug abuse, neglect, or because of sexual orientation. It was surprising to see the percentage of homeless youth, as I personally was not aware of the percentage being that high. Our guest Travis also talked about his organization and about all the work he is doing in order to form a greater awareness about the issues being presented. This radio show opened the mindsets of all the participants and made them all aware of the increasing rate of not only homeless youth, but also homeless individuals in general. We were also informed about services available that can temporarily help.
