There are many reasons why people become homeless, from the simple fact of losing a job to family violence and various types of addiction or abuse. This game, however, focuses on the everyday problems and setbacks a homeless person is likely to encounter in Montreal.

Hi! I am a Senior at Western Washington University in Washington State and am doing a project on Information Communication and Technologies for the homeless. I'm working with a group of students to develop a simulator similar to yours to help others understand the struggles of being homeless. I enjoyed playing your simulator and would love to talk to you more about how you created it. If you have any free time to talk about your simulator my email is dsand1126@gmail.com. Thank you!

Of course! I have emailed you :)
