If you’ve nothing better to do…

breisha_hilyard_housing_homelessness__1_of_4_…listen to WNPR’s “Where We Live” around 9:20 on Friday morning, and hear Breisha Hilyard (featured here) talk about her life. Brei has an incredible story, and it’s well worth listening to. I’ll be there, too.

  1. Better than hearing an incredible story of a determined, resilient and devoted woman/mother, relayed by an incredible story-teller? No. I have nothing better. I plan to tune in!

  2. It’s so wrong that things happen in such a way that it puts a hold on a person’s savings (as a security deposit), while not allowing a person who is homeless into the home. And how sleazy of them to not return the entire security deposit at the end of it!

    You and Brei made such a good point in that there should be a common portal or “go-to” organization that will fit the pieces of support together in a way that is helpful to the person needing support. I cannot imagine that could be architect-ed and implemented well without the valuable input of the end-users – people using the system. Maybe there is a consulting job for Brei in doing just that. People sitting in an office may have blind-spots that the people in need could easily point out. But, what do I know as I sit mostly on the outside of all of this.
