Despite a White House initiative, and major reductions in cities across the nation, veteran homelessness is still a problem in Baltimore. Wes looks at what we might learn from Riverside, California, a city that effectively eliminated veteran homelessness two years ago – and is well on its way to reaching “net zero” homelessness overall.
Guests on this episode include:
Paul Martin, Program Manager at South Baltimore Station
Beth Sandor, Director of Built for Zero (formerly Zero: 2016), an initiative of the national nonprofit Community Solutions.
Lynne Brockmeier, Regional housing manager for behavioral health for Riverside University Health System, in Riverside, California.
Alicia Robinson, City reporter for the Riverside Press-Enterprise
John Friedel, Executive director of The Baltimore Station
