Welcome to our blog! We are Monika, Nitika, Naina and Joy, social services students in Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Tikkurila Campus. We are about to start our adventure to go deeper into the issues related homelessness from different perspectives. Hopefully we generate some discussion about the topic. We would like to invite you to walk through this journey with us, as we unfold the many different aspects of this worldwide phenomenon, which has a huge impact in the society both on the individual and general level. Aside from personal interests, the choice of this topic is mainly because we would like to shine the light on the vulnerability of the people who are in this situation.
How do we plan to do this? We are about to carry out a project with homeless people, through which we hope to get a better understanding from the insider’s point of view as well as from the point of view of different organisations extending help and support for homeless people. Our blog is a combination of research-based approach and real-life interaction with the target group.
We hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as we enjoy writing it!
