State of the State RI

Guest: Dr. Eric Hirsch, Sociologist, Providence College, providence.edu
Host: Darlene D’Arezzo Time: 30 minutes
Dr. Hirsch is an urban sociologist who has been studying and working to eliminate homelessness for nearly thirty years. First and foremost, he debunks a longstanding myth: Most homeless people are mentally ill. He asserts that this is not true and offers various profiles of homeless groups to support his claim. Hirsch continues his discussion by identifying what he believes are the more frequent/dominant causes of homelessness and what needs to be done to significantly reduce homelessness.
