Service Dining Rooms
Factors at the individual, community, and structural level generate challenges that both contribute to homelessness and dehumanize street people. Working with Service Dining Rooms (SDR), a soup kitchen in Cape Town's Central Business District, we created a space to celebrate human dignity, establishing art and music programs, collecting personal stories, and connecting SDR guests to other services through resource mapping. We worked with street community members and four co-researchers to implement sustainable outcomes throughout the project.
