Video will be posted the afternoon following the program.

They are called people in transition: men and women who have no home and are trying to get back on their feet through training programs leading to paid employment. It's not an easy road, going from begging for handouts, living in doorways and wandering the streets, to a program where there are rules and expectations and paychecks. So it takes some purposeful individuals to make it happen. In this case: an entrepreneur and a social service agency manager.

Guests

  • Johnny Gonzales , owner of Environmental Land Management.
  • Brad Simmons , program manager at Neil Good Day Center (part of the Alpha Project for the Homeless).
