Homeless Not Nameless
POSSIBLE's Seattle interns teamed up with local non-profit Facing Homelessness to create meaningful connections in Seattle called ‘Homeless Not Nameless.’ In Seattle, homelessness is often viewed as ‘not my problem.’ There is no shared ownership of the homelessness issue. The interns wanted to change that by focusing on the relationship between homeless and non-homeless people by the simple power of someone’s name.
In order to do this, they had to capture the importance of an introduction. By knowing someone’s name, it shows that they are seen, heard, and actually cared about. They got the city of Seattle on a first name basis with the homeless community by seeking a personal connection with them through a giant game of Jenga.
The video showcases the emotional, raw connections that were made and has three actual homeless people in the video: Carl Hanes, Trevor Algoo and Asee Mason.
