Everywhere in the world, people are talking about California’s new reputation. It’s not sunny days, Hollywood, or Silicon Valley. It’s the homeless camps lining the streets of both big and small cities across California. With “The Bear in the Room”, we seek to look at some of the innovative ways local communities in Southern California are helping to alleviate the homeless crisis and get people back into stable housing. From programs to help veterans from being evicted to new models of shelters, the stories here in California are not just doom and gloom. They provide a model for how to help on a human scale.
