Discussing Homeless Issues In Sonora And Tuolumne County

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — On this weekend’s Mother Lode Views we focus on the increasing concerns surrounding homelessness, and how to deal with it, including groups taking action.

For those details, we turn to Tuolumne County Homeless Prevention Coordinator Kallae Brown, Resiliency Village Executive Director Mark Dyken and #1pileatatime co-creator Trisha Revord for some answers. They will provide details on how you can get involved and bust some myths surrounding homelessness.

“One myth is that everyone who is homeless lives on the street and is either drug or alcohol-addicted or mentally ill,” stated Dyken. “And that is a large component of the folks, but about a third of the homeless people are children and a lot of single moms.”

Mother Lode Views airs Saturday and Sunday morning at 9:30 on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML. Mother Lode Views can also be heard Sunday morning at 10 o’clock on 93.5 KKBN and at 9 a.m. on STAR 92.7.
