We're all one step away from being homeless...

Written by Tim Lambert, witf Multimedia News Director | Mar 1, 2011 8:51 PM

Even before the nation's economy collapsed, hundreds of thousands of Americans lived on the streets - homeless. Now, two years later, many more Central PA residents are in limbo - some without jobs and, increasingliy, without homes. How has the homeless population changed in recent years, and what can be done to provide effective aid to those in need? Join WITF in a partnership with the United Way of Lancaster County for a conversation on the evolving challenges of homlessness.

WITF's original production, One Step Away: A Community Forum on Homelessnes, aired Tuesday, March 1, at 8 p.m.
