From renting hotels to a jobs report-like census in the night, we look at ways communities are helping the homeless.

Interesting episode about what communities are doing to help the homeless. They counted 100,000 people who were homeless, so they found 100,000 homes for them, but that didn't work. I wished they answered why!

I didn't know NYC has a law requiring homeless people to be sheltered. This episode argues that shelters are more expensive than more permanent housing, and that housing is an easier problem to solve than imagined.
