In a city as big as New York, homeless people can easily fade to the background and be pushed to the sidelines. A few have learned to share their experience and help other’s heal. That's what inspired the new book “Sacred Shelter: Thirteen Journeys of Homelessness and Healing,” which follows the lives of formerly homeless New Yorkers. They graduated from a life-skills program and shared their journey on a path of discovery, forgiveness and growth.
Fordham Conversations Host Robin Shannon is joined by three people who took part in creating “Sacred Shelter: Thirteen Journeys of Homelessness and Healing.” Fordham Professor Susan Greenfield served as Editor of the book. James Addison and Dennis Barton were two of the 13 people who shared their experience with addiction, homelessness, transformation and hope. Listen here.
