Building Awareness of Homelessness

This is a short, yet interesting article about Indiana college students attempting to build awareness of the growing problem of homelessness in our country. Our class can relate to this issue after our discussions and readings have touched on the ideas of debt, abandoned properties, and creating affordable housing. One of the students interviewed noted that they are hoping to get more college students involved in the area's Habitat for Humanity program through their efforts. Though this article is not very in-depth, it serves as a strong reminder of the need for students like us to get involved with programs such as Habitat and to use our knowledge of urban economics to spread awareness of issues such as housing and debt.
