Listen on

Episode notes

At a supportive housing complex near Oracle Park, 62 military veterans who were once on the streets have started new lives. There are counseling offices, a computer lab and a garden. The Edwin M. Lee Apartments are a model for how to attack homelessness, Chronicle reporter Kevin Fagan tells host Demian Bulwa. Fagan discusses why the national homeless count among veterans dropped dramatically from 2010 to 2016 — and why that trend stalled under the Trump administration. | Unlimited Chronicle access:
