How Vermont is handling emergency housing and homeless prevention this winter
Thousands of Vermonters have relied on a federal program to stay housed this year. But as the temperatures drops, money for that program is running out, even as hundreds more are relying on the state’s shelters and other emergency housing programs. This hour, we're talking to state and local officials about emergency housing and homelessness prevention this winter, and planning for the months ahead.
Our guests are:
- Michael Ruggles, a transitional housing resident at the Fairbanks Inn in St. Johnsbury
- Katarina Lisaius, senior advisor to Dr. Harry Chen, the interim commissioner for Vermont's Department for Children and Families
- Sarah Russell, special assistant to end homelessness with Burlington's Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO)
