Shelter Shortage for Women Story Series in Westword

Bed CheckA series of articles in Westword‘s print and online publications in December 2012 examined the shortage of shelter beds available in the Denver metro area for women. I worked with the reporter to facilitate the interviews and gather other information (statistics, etc.) for this series of stories.
