Howwillyourresearchbeevidentinyourpracticum?

Volunteering at shelters and getting a chance to interview the people that volunteer full time and the homeless
personally, I will find out how the society responds to the homeless. I will also get intel on how the homeless
feel about how they're being treated.

I am creating a website with all of my vlogs and interviews that I have made throughout my project. It will also
have links to websites you can go to if you want to volunteer. There will also be phone number for animal
control or any other hotlines for homeless people/animals.

Whatdoyouhopetolearnduringthisprocess?

I hope to learn more about the process in which homeless people take in order to get off the streets so that I
too can be involved in that process. I also hope to learn about how we are as a society and what I can do to
make it better.
