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?"

Through the gripping and devastating narrative of a Would Works Artisan, "Pebble", we hear what it is like living through this pandemic when you are unhoused.
