Tackling the Challenges of Homelessness in Our Region

J. Junker

On The Point, we discuss the challenges of balancing the needs of the homeless with the economic and social needs of the larger community. Hyannis, with a homeless shelter located close to Main Street, is faced with long running concerns about this balance.  That's according to downtown business owners and community leaders. Mindy Todd interviews Rick Presbry, CEO of the Housing Assistance Corporation, Mark Forrest, board member of HAC, and Elizabeth Wurfbain, executive director of Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District about the issues.
