On February 20th, HJRC in collaboration with Health Providers Against Poverty, YWCA and CFMU 93.3 FM brought the 2013 Homelessness Marathon to Hamilton. The marathon is a live national 14 hour radio broadcast about Homelessness and Housing
Issues, heard across the country by over 40 campus community radio
stations with a focus on the voices of those directly impacted.

According to a 2011 report prepared by the Social Planning and Research Council, in Hamilton, shelter usage by women is increasing, while shelter use by men is decreasing. There are 195 men only beds, 127 for women, 90% of which are specifically designated for women fleeing violence . Women’s shelters routinely turn away clients owing to lack of capacity.

On today's episode of HJRC, we speak with six courageous women who tell us how precarious housing in Hamilton has impacted their health.
This program first aired as part of the 2013 homelessness marathon. visit us online www.healthjusticeradio.com
