Poverty No More – Episodes 15 & 16 (Season 2) – Homelessness

Episodes #15 and #16

(20-21 August 2011)

We may not see it every day, but there are families living amongst us who do not have a home to go to at night. Some sleep on void decks or at the beach, others bounce from one friend or relative’s place to another. There’s no single reason why someone loses their home. It could be because of a lost job, family issues or even a pregnancy. In Saturday’s episode, we share with you a true account of a courageous woman and her young daughter who don’t fit the stereotype. On Sunday, we take a look at trends and share some advice offered by a woman who has been through this.

If you know of somebody who needs help please refer to our resources below for more details.
