Stories of homelessness are not always for children... this book is! Written from lived experience and illustrated by children "I May Not Have A Home" is an educational tool to start a discussion about Homelessness and Human Rights. It sets an example that we shouldn't fear what we don't understand, we should educate. This book is based on the Homeless Charter of Rights written by the Client Action Committee, a group of advocates and ambassadors with lived experiences in homelessness. Each page contains: - The Right as quoted in the charter- A re-wording of the Right in elementary level English- An illustration by a child 6-12 years old showing their interpretation of the Right based on a conversation held with their parent or guardian about homelessness. The book concludes with a list of suggestions to take Homeless Rights "Out of the book and into the street" in safe, cost-effective, and impactful ways.
