I’ll be playing Trent Agecoutay’s new single called “A Place to Call Home” on next weeks show, inspired by his work as a Housing Outreach Worker in Edmonton. He says ” Everyone is at risk to homelessness. A job loss, a world wide pandemic, a relationship breakdown all bring with them the risk of losing one’s home and experiencing homelessness. In a country as well off as Canada, we all deserve A Place To Call Home.”
heres a vid about a housing initiative that he works with.
How Edmonton got 10,000 homeless people off the streets
The Housing First program offers homeless people a place to live without stipulations like sobering up or counselling.
