What is Home?

This project, What is Home?, documents resilience — not only of our youth, but also of an inherent determination to discover, or recover, the comfort and safety that represents home. What is Home? respects the honest and often oppressive realities of our current situations.

What is Home? is the collaborative effort of members of the WYC community: youth, staff, volunteers, members of the board and artist friends.
