Living Homeless

First-hand stories of life on the street, in shelters, and out of the mainstream.

 
International attention was focused on our local homeless population earlier this year when the Oprah Winfrey show profiled Sacramento's so-called "Tent City." Subsequent news reports tended to oversimplify area homelessness with short quotes and soundbites. But of course each person living without a home has a unique story to tell. This series was created to document and share some of those stories. Interviews were conducted and recorded by news director Joe Barr and senior producer Paul Conley on May 30th at a services and information fair called "Homeless Connect."
