Show Notes

People experiencing hopelessness in rural communities will go to great lengths to hide it. That invisibility hinders awareness of the problem, and the action needed to find solutions. This week we talk to Terrilee Kelford of Cornerstone Landing in Lanark County, Ont., about rural homelessness and some innovative responses in her community. New to the pod? Every week Helen Murphy, a rural newspaper editor and entrepreneur, invites guests to share fresh thinking, success stories and lessons learned.
