The Working Homeless
While this story is primarily about New York, the reality is that the working homeless are all around us. Just this week I ran into another local friend who was working full time yet living in his car for several months. At Hood River Warming Shelter this season we had guests who were working full-time but could not afford a place to live. At issue is the dual crisis of affordable housing and non-livable wages. I know we can do better!
