Brenda Konkel of Madison Street Medicine talks with 8 O’Clock Buzz host Tony Castañeda about the city’s first sanctioned campground, Dairy Drive. The tiny shelters, which have accommodated 53 formerly homeless people, serve as transitional housing until permanent residences are secured. Konkel, who serves as Executive Director/Program Coordinator for the Dairy Drive encampment, addressed recent criticism of the shelters, and tells listeners how they can help with donations of both cash and warm items for winter.
