Greater Chattanooga: “Unsheltered”

“Greater Chattanooga” logo

As the homeless population grows in the Chattanooga area, so does the urgency to assist those in need.

People and agencies alike understand the struggles of being unsheltered and work hard toward a common goal: providing help - and eradicating homelessness.

Learn about this important work in "Unsheltered” - the latest story by “Greater Chattanooga” from our public media partner, WTCI PBS - available on the Greater Chattanooga YouTube page and greaterchattanooga.org.


Also, WTCI has hosted a Twitter Spaces roundtable on homelessness - with Baron King of the Chattanooga Community Kitchen; Sam Wolfe, director of homelessness and supporting housing for the City of Chattanooga; and Mike Smith from the Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition.

Details on how to watch that conversation on WTCI’s social media.
