Art, Helping the Houseless About to Be Displaced

Episode Summary

“We need to find someplace these people can set up camp and be safe." Art Gillespie, a recovery success story himself, is now helping those who are being displaced from one encampment spot to another in Reno, Nevada. This episode also concerns displacements and whether proper written notices are being given before the camp displacements and cleanups take place, and whether there any shelter spots actually available when these happen. In this episode, we hear directly from those helping like Art, those being displaced and those coordinating the displacement. Our reporters are Scott King and Lucia Starbuck.
