Cityscape delves into issues related to emergency housing as part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign.

Superstorm Sandy showed us all how easy it is to lose everything in an instant.  Hundreds of people were left homeless from the storm -- highlighting the need for more emergency housing in times of crisis. 

As part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign, on this edition of Cityscape we're highlighting non-profit organizations in the tri-state area that assist people with housing needs in various situations, not just catastrophes like Sandy.  We'll talk with a Long Island organization that helps young mothers with nowhere to go, a group that helps heart patients and their families with housing needs, and an organization that provides housing assistance to struggling musicians. 

Below are links to the organizations featured in this program:

Jazz Foundation of America

Momma's House

Harboring Hearts
