Those in our community who are unemployed or underemployed face a daily challenge of surviving from one day to the next and struggle to meet basic needs like food and shelter. Who is there to catch them when they fall? In this episode of City Limits, Brian Moore examines important safety net programs, challenges assumptions about who uses them, and the local impact from national policy-making.
Safety Net Assistance, Family Assistance, and Emergency Assistance programs provide life-giving support to individuals and families who struggle to meet basic needs. In part 2 of Catch You When You Fall, Brian Moore introduces us to a variety of people with varied circumstances who rely on effective policies and programs to improve their situations.
