Homeless Father and Son: "House of Hope" in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada

Tom Pearson, Chair of  Poverty Action for Change Coalition (PACC), produced the above video: “Homeless in YR (York Region) Part 2″

Here are Tom Pearson’s comments:

“Father / son – Edward and Damien –  meet the media after the reaction!”

“Homeless father and son, Edward and Damien, react to the out-pour of public support to assist them in finding a permanent home, warmth, and food.”

“York Region Media group Writer Chris Traber’s series of articles caused a public outcry..this episode continues the search for a permanent place to live..PACC’s persistence to expose their dilemma reaches a peak….Stay tuned for Part 3….the conclusion.”

“Join the movement to build a home for those without in YR – the temporarily entitled “House of Hope” was inspired by the plights of Edward and Damian – a homeless father and son…help us get them and their friends living on the margins a home and stepping stones back into the community…’House of Hope”… – be part of the solution.”
