Russ - National Homelessness Week, 2017

Over the next week, I'll be making a series of posts as part of National Homelessness Week.

This is Russ, who is an artist and ex-chef, and was part of the Occupy movement in 2011. He suffers from bi-polar and mental health issues. Russ has been an on and off resident at the 24/7 Street Kitchen and Safe Space set up in Martin Place since its beginnings, in late December last year.

According to Homelessness Australia, 1 in 200 people go homeless on any given night across the nation.
