Chris, Comparing Services for the Homeless from City to City

Episode Summary

Many people living on the streets say one place is better than another in terms of services. They aren’t always in the place they prefer. How do services compare? Why does a person without housing end up in one place rather than another? For this episode of the Biggest Little Streets Podcast, reporters Scott King and Lucia Starbuck were at Barbara Bennett Park in downtown Reno. There they met Chris, who had recently re-located to Reno from Portland, Oregon. Note: this was produced and recorded before the pandemic hit the Biggest Little City.
