Wednesday, 11/16/11 Noon and 7pm
The recent Occupy protests in Burlington brought to light problems of mental illness and substance abuse among some homeless people, but advocates say that doesn’t tell the whole story. We look at the entrenched issues facing some of Vermont’s homeless population and the resources to help them. Our guests are Matt Young, supervisor of the Howard Center’s Street Outreach Team in Burlington, and Rita Markley, executive director of COTS, the Committee On Temporary Shelter.
