WATCH: Homeless Mom Calls for Help

Posted: Updated:

What happens when you empower a homeless mom with a video camera? We get to see first-hand homeless service's failed systems. I wrote this partially in response to comments left on the initial post I wrote last week , and partially because Carey is tired of a broken system and sick of people jumping to conclusions about how easy it is to find support needed. I have two cell phones, a laptop and a car, and I work in homeless services, and I cannot find help for people, so how the heck can a homeless mom find help?

In this video taken from her blog Carey calls homeless service providers for help. This is powerful insight into a broken system that we need to fix.
