According to the National Coalition for the Homeless over 700000 people in the United States are without proper shelter on any given night and that number is steadily increasing A lot of those people are women New York is a great example of a city filled with homeless people During the tragedy of 911 WTC attack New York lost nearly 80000 jobs and many people have turned to soup kitchens and food pantries What can be done to diminish this major problem that modern cities encounter One way to do it is to present this problem on an ethnographic film and call people around the world for their help in the form of money clothing food apartments and offers of jobs to these people We decided as a group of 3 students to do an ethnography film on a group of homeless women We are going to take 2 years to make our film Our highest purpose on doing this film is to help these women in various ways We also want to offer a different perspective on the people who are often referred to as vagrant beggar and bum if there could be a little less hatred directed at people in the street because of our film that would make a huge difference There are certain myths who state that homeless people including women into the cities are if not active then latent robbers and plunderers prostitutes and pimps and carriers and transmitters of contagious diseases We want to show people the real aspect of the lives of these women and show to people all over the world that homelessness is simply a state where the problems of the individual exceed the resources of the individual The myths about homelessness have to be dispelled After all every one of us can be in their position None of the questions we raise in our film are new and we have no better answers
