I've been skydiving through life: coping with homelessness since 16 | Generation Homeless, Episode 3

In this episode, Chris discusses his “skydive through life” wherein his premature removal from the child welfare system resulted in his first experience of homelessness at sixteen. He has been perpetually homeless ever since and is desperate to secure a more permanent home for him and his dog, Casper.

Despite the constant call to shelter in place, within Tkaronto/Toronto, more than 8,000 people remain unhoused. Generation Homeless is a series dedicated to the crises that rampant real estate speculation created across Turtle Island; particularly as lived and experienced by youth.
