Sam Wolfe is the Homeless Program Coordinator for the city of Chattanooga. In this episode Sam discuss the state of homelessness in Chattanooga by recounting the recent Point-In-Time Count as well as broadening our imagination of the type of neighbors in our city who may be dealing with homelessness. We also talk about the recent successes of the recent initiative to house homeless veterans and how that could provide a model for bringing together a coalition of partners to create a new initiative that can serve most vulnerable in our community.
