This is a special edition of Discussion at Brookings Café covering the topic of homelessness in our community, hosted by Curry Coastal Pilot staff writer Boyd Allen. It was recorded before a live audience at the Chetco Community Public Library.

The first half of the show is a panel discussion with panelists Father Bernie Lindley of Saint Timothy’s Episcopal Chruch in Brookings, AllCare Health Board Member and Chair of Curry County Community Advisory Council Georgia Nowlin, and Beth Barker-Hidalgo, Board Chair of the Curry Homeless Coalition.

A question and answer session followed the discussion. A number of people gave opinions, including homeless people who spoke of life from their point of view.

This is a two-hour long show, but well worth the listen. Consider listening in two sessions.
