Apr 30, 2021

From urban cities to rural landscapes, the United States crisis of the unhoused is yet another pandemic in the age of COVID. It’s estimated that nearly 200,000 people sleep on the streets every night. But countless more are invisible, teetering on the brink of foreclosures or evictions, dwelling in substandard housing or resorting to vehicular shelters. We explore the status quo in an era when unhoused has become a lurking nemesis for too many women and families. While this episode makes plain the national dilemma, we share stories about defying gentrification, beating the odds and tapping into the indomitable spirit that makes a way out of no way.
