How Connecticut’s homeless emergency response system saved a life

jim_smith_homeless_vet___1_of_1_This is Jim King, a Marine veteran with an incredible story to tell. I sat in his apartment interviewing, and half the time I wanted to hug him and the rest of the time, I wanted to thank him. I only did the latter. His story is so many other veteran’s stories.

I wrote this for WNPR. And thank you, Heather, and Ryan, for your great work on this, too.

    Nice article. Connecticut is fortunate to have all those folks committed to making it work.

    1. It’s really pretty incredible, the cooperation. It’s awesome, too, to be up close to watch it.
