    Power of Storytelling Part 2

    Power of Storytelling Part 2

    In the last part of this series, Marisol and Host K-DiD talk about the power of using your voice and the power of community in addressing and shaping the narrative in homelessness, including the misperception that people are experiencing homelessness due to mental health concerns.

    The Housing Narrative Lab leads with equity and focuses on telling the story of who becomes homeless and why, and how safe and affordable housing is their first step toward stability and opportunity.

Important podcast

This is a really important podcast, with people who have experienced homelessness themselves sharing their experiences. It can be helpful for others trying to navigate the system but also for those with no experience of homelessness who want to learn about it. I hope it helps combat some people’s stereotypes.
