Homelessness stories in the press

Posted by: VHFA on 7/9/2008

Spurred by our publication of "Family Homelessness in Vermont" (388 KB; PDF), the fourth in a series of VHFA issue papers released last week, there have been a number of stories about homelessness in local media.

The Associated Press picked up the story that appeared in The Burlington Free Press, which led to coverage in the Boston Globe and USA Today, among others. (Here's the Brattleboro Reformer's abbreviated version of the story: "Homeless families rise in Vermont".)

More recently, Seven Days ran a story ("Vermont's newborn homeless redefine 'families in need'"), as did The Stowe Reporter ("Homelessness rising in Lamoille County?").

By the way, the "Press" area of the Vermont Housing Awareness Campaign is a good place to track housing stories appearing in Vermont media. The Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition also does a nice job of posting stories of interest to housing folk.

Both sites were developed by VHFA.
