New Report: Hidden Homelessness in the Upper Peninsula
Rural Insights student researcher Max Steele recently published a new report on hidden homelessness in the Upper Peninsula–a problem that varies county-by-county and is a bigger issue than it often appears to be on the surface. Not only does it affect many adults in our region, it greatly affects children, too.
“The problem of homelessness, or poverty is not just in a far-off city such as Detroit or Milwaukee but in fact could be our friends, neighbors, or family. This situation that some find themselves in is significant and serious; there may not be actual federal or state resources to help them.”
