We are going to focus today on the homeless youth that struggle in our County. And our guests today are from the HomePlate agency. We welcome Jacen Greene a board member and Co-founder and Assistant Director, Homelessness Research and Action Collaborative from Portland State University and Bridgett Calfee, HomePlate’s executive Director. She has been with agency for over 15 years and in fact is it’s founding director. . Bridget holds a Masters of Social Work from Portland State University. We explore issues of homelessness in our state and county with an emphasis on youth, and our guests will share some very exciting news for the agency and the clients they serve.
*please note, Inside Washington County will be taking a short break for the summer and will be back with new episodes the week after labor day. Until then, KBOO will air evergreen episodes handpicked by Rob Solomon!*
