Water Accessibility among Homeless Individuals
MetadataShow full item record
Homelessness only further exposes an individual to human rights abuses regarding water, food, privacy, shelter, and health. Water is a right and necessity. It is especially pertinent in Texas when temperatures reach well over 100°F. My research aimed to increase water accessibility among the homeless population of Austin by distributing reusable water bottles. I hypothesized that by providing homeless individuals with reusable water bottles, it would increase their accessibility to water, decrease health risks, and limit their environmental footprint.
