On June 4th our Shed Students will participate in the Walk in My Shoes simulation at the Urban Ministry Center. During this simulation, our group will be asked to adopt the identity of a person experiencing homelessness and to “Walk in Their Shoes” by visiting several agencies and locations around the Urban Ministry Center. This homeless simulation lasts anywhere between one and a half to two hours depending on the assignments given. This exercise helps each group comprehend the everyday difficulties of the homeless, the physical demands of walking from location to location, the frustration of homelessness, the barriers faced by our neighbors and the incredible strength and complexity of these people.
