November is Homelessness Awareness Month and in honor of that, Shurita and Christie are having an unfiltered conversation about the growing humanitarian crisis in their community of Springfield, MO.
Springfield, like many communities from coast to coast, is seeing more on more people without shelter as the weather begins to turn cold. This conversation touches on new federal relief money and how it should be stewarded, long-term changes that are needed, barriers to change, and the overall economic impact of leaving homelessness unaddressed in communities like theirs.
We hope that this episode will educate you about some of the reality of Springfield, MO while opening your eyes to the same struggles and issues in your own community.
