Students in the Social Justice EOP course at Joseph H Kerr visit Siloam Mission
Snow Lake Students Learn About Homelessness
The students in the Social Justice EOP course at Joseph H Kerr in Snow Lake traveled to Winnipeg to learn about homelessness and poverty in Winnipeg’s north end through Siloam Mission’s Under the Radar program. The students stayed at the mission, volunteered and learned about the underlying issues of homelessness and poverty over four days and three nights. Siloam Mission is a four-story building located at 300 Princess Street. It houses a drop in center, clothing room, health center, and a 110 bed emergency shelter. Students and chaperones stayed in classrooms on the 4th floor in a setting similar to the accommodations found on sports trips.
