Local non-profit gets national attention

ASHLAND, Ore. – “Forever Homes, Vehicles for Change” will be featured on the Kelly Clarkson show Wednesday.

The non-profit transforms used buses into homes for homeless kids and families.

Journalist and founder Julie Akins said homelessness is a national issue.

“The number one reason people are homeless is a lack of affordable housing,” Akins said. “So many people working cannot afford a place to live and I think it is an absolute outrage and a shame in this country.”

The segment highlights the project and talks with a family living in a ‘skoolie’.

The interview on the Kelly Clarkson Show is Wednesday at 4 p.m. on NBC5.
