Homelessness Close to Home

The  homeless — we may notice them on sidewalks or at traffic lights.  Sometimes they’re holding signs, sometimes they’re rummaging through trash or pushing carriages packed with bags.  How much do we really know about this population to which virtually none of us would want to belong?

A two-part series about homelessness in our region that recently aired on WGBY’s nightly program, Connecting Point, explores this population that is too often invisible or out of sight/out of mind.  To see the two-part series and other segments on homelessness through the local lens of Connecting Point, click here.

At PBS LearningMedia you’ll find additional resources on homelessness around the country and the world for grades 6-12 .
