Homelessness Maze makes Linking Hands Summer Newsletter

What’s it like to be homeless, jobless and without food in Dundas County? Linking Hands hosted a Homelessness Maze on April 12 at the Joel Steele Community Centre in Winchester.

Mark Snelgrove (pictured), a representative from the local branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA),  facilitated the event.

Roughly 80 people attended. Participants were provided a “real” scenario and were asked to navigate the system to secure food, housing and finances.

More than 15 agencies representing local services and resources were in attendance providing a realistic experience for participants.

Following the maze activity, Snelgrove led a debrief giving participants an opportunity to discuss their feelings.
