SANSU Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’ “Our House” Parody for Homelessness Action Week 2016
SANSU – Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’ homelessness awareness video is a parody of an old 80’s song. So many people think they are not going to end up homeless.
I was a former business owner used to making thousands of dollars a day found myself being homeless after I became a disabled single parent.
Don’t think it can’t happen to you! Even if you do have a well paying job, one day due to unforeseen circumstances you may find yourself homeless just like I did.
I wasn’t a drug user, nor did I drink excessively. I still found myself checking my young 6 yr old daughter and I into a homeless shelter.
Watching this video put me back into my past experiences with homelessness. The federal and provincial government must do something about it The provincial shelter rate has been stuck at $375 for over two decades.
Everything starts with a safe warm place to live.
If people think that ignoring the homeless will make them go away. Think again, homeless people cost society many times over what we would pay if we properly had good support and adequate housing for the homeless.
Homeless people use far more community services such as hospital care than a person that has a safe place to live.
If all this doesn’t concern you, at least think about the massive amount of taxes wasted needlessly on emergency services. Want to pay lower taxes?? Then write your politician (Local, Provincial and Federal) and tell them to do more to end homelessness!

We all may have a friend or family member who is in danger of losing their lives even to one episode of experimental drug use.
Dealers are putting Fentanyl and other powerful opiates into what some may call soft drugs (marijuana) to make it more potent thus making the user addicted.
SANSU’s Justin Timberlake parody has a serious message for the Provincial Emergency on substance users dying from Fentanyl overdose.
Please Watch and Share!
They are not statistics; this video shows they are real people!
