We had great turnout and robust conversation at the city’s winter tent homeless shelter in Barrio Logan Thursday night. My thanks to everyone who came, and to the Alpha Project for hosting us. We were in essentially the living room of the big tent, where more than 200 people sleep each night.
The event fit into our Quest series on homelessness. Many great questions came in for our five panelists. We’ll have videos from their presentations, and more answers to your questions, in the coming days. In the meantime, check out some photos that Sam Hodgson took as the conversation unfolded.
It rained right before the event started, underscoring the urgency many of the tent’s residents feel during the winter to find a place to sleep indoors.
