Why It's So Hard To Stop Being Homeless

Why It's So Hard To Stop Being Homeless

Bertha Martinez and Shaquanna Spence tell us about their experiences being caught up in the city's homeless shelter program. They're among eight homeless New Yorkers profiled by journalist DW Gibson for his latest piece in New York Magazine. Gibson will also join us to discuss the story, “New York Spends $1.2 Billion a Year on Homelessness: And Yet the Problem is Only Getting Worse,” and what he learned while reporting on the city's escalating homeless crisis.
