Homeless Awareness

By ahphotography  
This was a shoot I've done for a film, one of the shots is the DVD cover, I dont think it'll be this one though Smile
Film is about government funding for the homeless and is highlighting the serverity of homelessness that people dont actually see in Halifax. Its aiming to get a hostle for them.

I work in the benefit system, & it still amazes me that so many people are homeless. You'd think all they have to do is claim, but as with many things, it's not that simple.

I hope your campaign is successful.

Yeah well alot of people tell them to get a job, but you cant get a job without a house, and you cant get a house without a job...

Like the tones to this. Hostels aren't always the best answer though. I've visited several, some very good and some appalingly bad.

I hope that this one will be good Smile
The church is behind it all so we've got a fairly decent background. x

Yeah hopefully. I work at one run by a church or a church group every Wednesday, I can put you in touch with them for advice if you want. I work for a homeless organisation and do some outreach projects with several hostels.
