Show Notes:

The housing crisis affects people in communities small and large across the province. The face of homelessness in rural areas is different -- there are fewer people sleeping on the streets, but the proportion of people without stable housing may be even higher than in the city. Helen Boyd is with Dawn2Dawn Action on Homelessness Society.
