Why Many Americans Remain Homeless 17

The United States spends billions of dollars each year trying to house the poor. NPR reporter Laura Sullivan joins us to talk about why so many Americans – including many Texans – remain homeless despite these efforts. She teamed with Frontline on the documentary “Poverty, Politics and Profits,” which looks at the affordable-housing crisis – it airs Tuesday on PBS stations. Our conversation is a part of KERA’s One Crisis Away: No Place To Go series.
