The goal of our project is to try and decrease the number of homeless people and try and help these people. We have been working on this project from February to May. In my project there are three more people beside me. We want to try and help lessen this problem of homelessness. I want people to become more aware of homelessness and see just how big of a problem it really is. The project hasn’t been that successful because we didn’t really manage to achieve anything, but we made more people aware of homelessness as we got a good number of views.   

Through this project more people became aware of homelessness, but we didn’t accomplish our goal. These things can be seen through our blog and petition. We made more people become aware of homelessness because on our blog we got 131 views and 67 visits. This means that a good number of people saw what were advocating for and the problem were trying to solve. More people became aware of how much of a problem homelessness is and how serious it is.  

I know that we were not successful in our endeavor because on our petition we were only able to get 12 signatures even though we had over 40 views for the petition. This means that a lot of people saw our petition about homelessness, but many of them didn’t care. So this shows that not many people wanted to support our cause.

This is why I believe that more people became aware of homelessness, but that chose to ignore it and didn’t take it as something serious or important because they didn’t pay attention to it. Somethings I could do next time to improve my project is post about it on multiple social media platforms and make it more interesting and sound important. You can see and learn more about homelessness from me and my peers on our blog at
