Interview With Homeless Advocate Pamela Atkinson

Utah Policy conducted an interview with Utah Homeless Advocate Pamela Atkinson

“It’s also a myth to think that getting a job will keep a person from becoming homeless. We may see an able-bodied man on the street and think, “Get a job.” But even working two or three low-paying jobs is not conducive to preventing homelessness, Pamela explained. Rather than being stuck in one or more low-paying jobs, homeless people need extra training so they can qualify for better-paying jobs that can sustain a family.” Derek Miller, Utah Policy, October 1, 2017
