Human Settlement / Finding HomeHuman Settlement – Finding Home works to provide understanding that in order to survive and rebuild our lives, we need shelter as a basic human need. Sometimes that shelter is built by the individual with a tent or a tarp along sidewalks, under trees or along hillsides. Sometimes that shelter is built by a community of people coming together to form an intentional community of support. Sometimes that shelter is in a vehicle parked in parking lots or along the street. Sometimes that shelter is under a bridge or in a doorway.
“A human settlement, or community, is not merely a collection of houses. It is a human (social and cultural) organization” By Phil Bartle, PhD http://cec.vcn.bc.ca/cmp/whatcom.htm
You don’t need to be housed in a traditional structure to be human.
