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.
