Visibility for Overlooked
People in the City
The voices of homeless people in the city need to be heard, especially because their mental health is often dismissed. For that reason, we created a project for them to become heroes in stories that raised awareness through the medium of comic strips. These comics have homeless people as their heroes. They tell authentic stories about them that raise awareness about the meaning of respectfulness and empathy for humankind.
Through these comics, people supported homeless mental health, so their money went to a great cause. In addition, homeless people sold these comics to have a small revenue from them, while feeling good about being an influential character in them. This way, all the city got to be a part of helping to end homelessness and to prevent severe mental health issues in homeless people.
This issue is of huge importance, especially because ending homelessness is a human right, and everyone should have the opportunity to be happy and housed.
