The COVID-10 pandemic has given rise to an increase in homeless encampments in the City of Boulder. This month on our radio show, the Community Foundation's Jim Williams takes on the root cause of this phenomenon – Boulder County's lack of affordable housing, and what's being done to address it. He interviews Shay Castle, founder and editor of Boulder Beat, and AnnMarie Jensen, founder of East Boulder County Housing Opportunity Coalition. Both say more must be done, and both are hopeful that public pressure can lead to more affordable housing.
