Research on Family Homelessness Reported to UN

September 11, 2020
By CSA Sisters of St. Agnes

In 2018 UNANIMA International, in collaboration with Sophia Housing, launched a research project on Family Homelessness and Trauma:

"Family homelessness is a global epidemic that has resulted from shortages of affordable housing, increasing migration and socioeconomic crises across countries. It exposes children and parents to a high risk of traumatic issues. The research produced by NYU students examines the evolution of global family homelessness through evaluating the causes and experiences of family homelessness in three countries: Greece, the U.S. and India, and provides possible advocacy responses for UNANIMA International, and all those advocating for families experiencing homelessness."

In August of 2020, UNANIMA submitted the final research update and recommendations to the UN.

This presentation will explore the reasons behind this courageous move and the early history of the sisters in Fond du Lac, with a discussion about the collaborative efforts between the sisters and community leaders that have left an imprint on the city.

Lukomski has been the archivist for the Sisters of St. Agnes since 2016. She has a bachelor's degree from Alverno College and a master's in Library Science from UW-Milwaukee. Prior to moving to Fond du Lac, she was an archivist at the Western Historical Manuscript Collection at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

History at Home focuses on stories about the area's past every third Thursday of the month. The programs are free; no registration required. Many History at Home programs are captured on video and shared on the library's YouTube channel. That link can be found at fdlpl.org/miss-program.
