Weekly Episode

Discourse

One of the locations that Michael discuss is the Springwater Corridor Trail in Portland, Oregon. There is one particular stretch where there are 500 homeless people in tents on both sides of the trail. Last week, the Mayor said he is going to sweep the 500 people off of the trail. Michael talks about what the City is doing and how they are doing it, how service providers are working with the homeless community and the city for transitioning into temporary and permanent locations and how Advocates are helping the homeless community with their needs and concerns.


In today's podcast, Michael talks about what certain cities are doing to help their homeless communities. He addresses both the good and bad ideas that cities are doing and offers advice on how you can encourage your city leaders to adopt some of the good ideas that other cities are doing to help homeless individuals and couples.
