Homeless of City Heights speak about change

The AjA Project’s YAC Youth Media team set out to measure the impact of social investments aimed at improving communities in City Heights that are suffering economically and health-wise. Beyond looking at rates of poverty and unemployment, they wanted to explore how individuals perceive change in their communities and quality of life, and what kinds of things residents believe would bring positive changes. “People have their whole lives in their shopping cart, and there’s no place for people who lose their homes.” A story that tries to capture opinions and sentiments from the homeless population, from the AjA Project.
