Homelessness and City Development

    In a press conference on homelessness Tuesday, HUD Secretary Steve Preston said, “many people want a tidy world and, for them, the homeless present an uncomfortable reality.” We discuss the challenges of keeping a city attractive to investors and visitors while having compassionate policies towards the homeless. Our guests are SISTER MARY SCULLION, co-founder of Project H.O.M.E., which provides housing opportunities, medical care and education for homeless and low-income people and PAUL LEVY, President and CEO of Center City District, an organization devoted to keeping Center City Philadelphia clean and safe.
