It has become nearly impossible to avoid noticing homeless people in just about any community of any size in our region.
High rents, low vacancy rates, low wages... they are among a long list of contributing factors to homelessness in all corners of the "state of Jefferson."
We explore the situation in many of the counties we serve, with a series of interviews under the banner "Out in the Cold." We begin with Mendocino County, very rural but also very close to the San Francisco metropolitan area.
Kate Maxwell, a reporter from the Mendocino Voice joins us to talk about the marijuana "trimmigrants" who show up for work and can't find housing.
