For every one homeless person on the street, there are three who are Hidden Homeless. The Hidden Homeless can be found couch surfing with family, friends and often strangers. They can also be found filling hospital beds, fleeing domestic violence in motel rooms, attending treatment programs or serving a jail sentence.

Join one of Edmonton’s leading Aboriginal agencies, Native Counselling Services of Alberta, as they explore an issue rooted in Historic Trauma with multiple pathways in and few options out.
