Here are some suggestions by student Ann Macey
I was thinking of ways to link families in need with families with space. Families with space might have a special concern . The might feel they would want to extend their compassion to a single mom who was recently raped, to a battered woman, to a disabled man or woman. There might be a space on the form where this could be expessed. A family might want to give space to a homeless family where the chidren were the same age as there own children, broadening the kid's experience on both sides of what truly makes up our culture.
The homeless family would probably prioritize a safe space and an introduction, to make sure they did not feel less, or invisible.
Let me introduce you to my family. My name is Debora Phillips-Cannon. My family consists of three. I have a fifteen- year old son, Skyler Cannon, and a twenty- year old daughter, Veronica Cannon.
My family is presently homeless. My son and I are residing at the moment in a shelter here in the Cambridge community. My daughter is twenty years old, she remains homeless and living from house to house amongst her friends, because the system will not allow her to live with myself and my son in the shelter. WHY? Because of her age she's considered an adult. Veronica doesn't have any children; therefore she can't get any help, or she don't know where to go for help. My daughter was a victim of domestic violence and the works, but cannot get help because she doesn't have children!
I'm doing what I have to do in the shelter to obtain housing for my family. When I find a place for my family, Veronica will still be left homeless, because only the said family members on my lease can reside in my home. It's true my daughter is an adult, however I'm still her mother, and I still have motherly care for my children…
