To understand homelessness, you could work at a social service agency. Or volunteer. Or read.
Or, if you believe a website called “Real View Tours,” you can also pay $2,000 to live undercover as a homeless person in Seattle with a tour guide for three days.
“You will gain a new respect for the folks that find themselves in this predicament,” Real View Tours says of its “Course in Applied Homelessness.”
“You will see the seedier side of Seattle in a new light and have an experience that you will never forget. Embrace the Experience!”
There is more here, and I thank Mark Thorson for the pointer.
