005 – Building The Doorway: A Story of Homeless Youth, Compassion and Cash

What's this episode all about?

In this episode, Jeff talks with Marilyn and Kaitlin at the Calgary not-for-profit “The Doorway” about their organization and their unique approach to getting young people off the street. The Doorway talks about culture as a driving force to helping youth experiencing homelessness. They talk about their participant centred process which was at times considered controversial, and why incentives (CASH), and a business plan approach to getting young people off the street is so effective.
