THE ELEANOR RIGBY PROJECT
JOIN OUR CLASS FOR THIS PROJECT
We see them on the streets, cocooned in doorways, pushing overloaded shopping carts, standing on corners announcing their troubles on cardboard signs. Old, young, men, women.
Who are they?
Where did they come from?
What circumstances put them on the street?
and most importantly: What keeps them there?
The Eleanor Rigby Project will introduce you to the real people behind the homeless facade. You will study the facts, examine the stereotyping placed on those who are homeless and be introduced to people who live on the streets.
And after all the facts and emotions have settled you will be challenged to ask yourself why we all have a strange feeling of discomfort each time we see a homeless person, what you can do to help and the truth behind the old adage:
"There, but for the grace of God, go I"
