CityStream: History of Homelessness & A Second Chance
CityStream: History of Homelessness & A Second Chance

Homelessness is a baffling problem in this city with no solution in sight. Seattle's homeless issues are not new. A review of the Seattle Municipal Archives reveals similar challenges more than a century ago. Plus, a program designed to help homeless adults get back on their feet receives special status. And a Boy Scout troop opens its arms to those who struggle to fit in. Host Nicole Sanchez has these stories from Magnuson Park, home base for Seattle Parks and Recreation's Seattle Conservation Corps program.
