Flipping the Script
We know it is our duty to educate our community on the realities of homelessness and mental illness. We also cherish opportunities to give our clients a platform to have their voices heard.
Recently, we welcomed a class of 3rd-year medical students and Pineview students to one of our homes to hear presentations put together from our clients.
It was an awe-inspiring event and here an excerpt from what Morgan thought about it:
"Hearing clients recount their life experiences and seeing them able to smile when speaking about where they are now was inspirational. They all displayed vulnerability, resiliency, and dedication towards maintaining the self-sufficiency Second Heart Homes has helped them achieve.
Our short time together certainly opened my eyes to hardships that many of us are fortunate enough to be ignorant of. Such conversations are crucial to combat the stigmatization surrounding mental health, homelessness, and other disparities that are way too prevalent nationwide."
