Affordable Housing / LGBTQ Homeless Youth

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Each year 400 affordable housing vouchers are released to Charlotteans in need but the demand far exceeds the supply. We talk to some of the people working to find housing for those who applied but didn't receive those vouchers. Then, we turn our attention to one particular group of homeless people: LGBTQ teens whose parents have shown them the door. Where do they go? How do they survive? We find out.
