Years ago, I had the honour of editing Cross-Cultural Dialogues on Homelessness by Jay Levy and Robin Johnson for the publisher, Loving Healing Press. The link is to my review. Ever since, I’ve maintained an interest in homelessness, and am part of a group that shares news about it.
This one caught my heart.
Five years ago, Marice Cumber established an art school for homeless people in London. Her homeless young students have collaborated in producing the Book of Homelessness in November, 2020. The first printing has sold out, but you can still buy it and help fund scholarships to university, and further good works by this wonderful organisation.
Nor is this just a charity: you get value for your money:
“The Book of Homelessness is a stunning anthology of stories and drawings created by people affected by homelessness about their own lives and experiences. It is the first time that a book like this has been published. The stories contained in the book are personal, emotional, raw and honest. The stories are of pain, of abuse, of dysfunction, of families, of war and of rejection and of misplaced love, of overcoming difficulties and of fighting and succeeding. This is a beautiful book that shows the complexities of homelessness and what causes it and the struggles that people have undertaken to succeed and flourish.”
