OPB's 5-part look at homelessness continues today - October 23, 2009

 

OPB's 5-part series examining homelessness continues this morning with its third installment, "No Place to Call Home: Rural Homelessness." (Listen to today's show here.)

Nick joined "Think Out Loud" host Emily Harris Monday, October 12, for a great discussion of chronic homelessness, which you can listen to here

 

The series couldn't be more timely. Oregon is in the top five nationally in unemployment, hunger, and homelessness - truly daunting challenges. And with Winter fast approaching, the 1,600 people sleeping outside each night in Portland need our help more than ever.
