By Tatiana A. :

First I would like to say that I loved all the points that were addressed in this podcast. Homelessness is such a huge issue and with so many people affected by it, it seems our communities have normalized it. Many people do not understand how someone gets to the point of being homeless which is why I was happy that there were references to ACES and bringing awareness to communities to destigmatize homelessness. If people were more aware of how homelessness occurs I feel work can be down within communities to help end homelessness from within.
