More than one quarter of Philadelphia residents, roughly 400,000 people, live below the poverty line. These are people that are one paycheck, one sick day, one more eviction notice away from becoming homeless.
As of January 2018, 1,083 people live on the streets, according to city data. Each person has their own reason for finding themselves on the streets. The Naming the Homeless podcast explores what these reasons are and how they differ to offer the public a better understanding of what it is to be homeless.
