Hawaii Homelessness; "Gappers of Frit"
It’s Thursday, April 10th – From HPR2, it’s The Conversation
Over the last few days, state officials have been meeting with the man responsible for overseeing the Housing and Urban Development grant programs to prevent and end homelessness. Mark Johnston has had a pretty packed schedule. We talked very early in the morning this week. I asked him to put Hawaii in the context of all the municipalities, in all the states he has been visiting.
