Without a home in a pandemic: a Would Works Artisan shares her story in this podcast

Many Would Works Artisans reside in congregate settings with other people experiencing homelessness.  During the pandemic, these facilities have become COVID-19 hotspots.  In this episode of the Uncertain Hour, host Krissy Clark asks the question, "how did these communal living facilities become our primary response to homelessness in the first place?"
