What does it take to get back on your feet after a bout of homelessness? For some homeless Native Americans, the journey home is not as simple as finding an apartment and a job. They also need to reconnect with family and reestablish a place in their tribal communities. In today’s show, we discuss the issues homeless Natives face and we put the spotlight on programs and groups that work to try to bring homeless Natives home.
