This Sunday CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek was joined by two guests from Freedom House, a homeless shelter for families. President Robyn Davis and former resident and current staff member Tameika Hughes appeared on the program.
Hughes shared her journey from being homeless to working with the homeless. Davis spoke about the importance of breaking down stereotypes of homelessness.
"It's not just the person who is pushing a shopping cart. It's not just someone who has an addiction problem or alcohol problem," Davis said. "Is that a portion of the community? Yes, it is. But it's not everybody. That's why it's important to demonstrate that families with children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. And that children have no say in the decisions that their parents are making."
CW 14 Focus is a weekly, half-hour interview program that focuses on the issues important to people in northeast Wisconsin. Each week, Robert Hornacek will sit down with a different guest and go beyond the sound bites. The program will highlight the people making a difference in the community and give viewers an opportunity to get in depth perspective. CW 14 Focus airs Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
