For Episode 22 of the Nooze Hounds podcast, we talked to Deborah Woolard, founder of Block Love CLT, an advocacy and support organization for our homeless neighbors. The three of us discussed what The Block is, and how Woolard started Block Love CLT out of the back of her car. We talked about a recent accident that nearly killed multiple people at The Block, the upcoming resumption of eviction hearings, plus the pros and cons of large-scale homeless advocacy organizations and the Housing First model.
