The article reports on the documentaries featuring health status of homeless people, photographed by young women and homeless mothers who were trained by Katerina Cizek, filmmaker-in residence at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. Cizek has trained young mothers to use digital cameras and keep photoblogs which led to a text exhibit, I Was Here, that was launched at Toronto City Hall last January 2007, a comprehensive document, WE ARE HERE: A Declaration by Young Parents, that laid out changes in social assistance, childcare, housing, healthcare and education and a sound exhibit, Street Health Stories, that gave voice to the homeless around Toronto. The group was able to produce a film "The Interventionist: Chronicles of a Mental Health Crisis Team," and "The Bicycle." INSET: Filmmaker-in-residence at St. Michael's Hospital.
