of Auckland's homeless young men
Homelessness is a difficult subject. Each path to the street is vastly different, each person’s experience is unique.
Patrick doesn’t know when exactly he became “a streetie”. It was sometime in his late teenage years, but there is no exact day or moment which pinpoints the moment he became “homeless”.
For others, there’s the moment they were kicked out of home. It could be the day they decided to run away. It could be the afternoon they were discharged from hospital, or perhaps when they arrived home to find their key no longer opened the door.
There’s no single story of homelessness, or single solution to stop it, says Patrick Holley.
