On this episode of the podcast 'Homeless in San Diego: Real People, Real Stories,' host Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, is joined by Joni Halpern, an administrative lawyer who works to help low-income individuals and families get access to benefits and overcome barriers to housing.
Greg and Joni are then joined by Lydia, a former client of Joni's who used to work with homeless families, before becoming sick, losing her job, and losing her home herself.
Calls to Action:
- Consider hiring homeless and/or formerly homeless community members. Without a job, thriving in a new home can be nearly impossible for many of our neighbors in need.
- Challenge the way you think about people in need. Get involved by learning more about your community's needs, give your time, or consider giving a monetary donation.
