Welcome to my bedroom closet!
In 2004, KQED-FM (NPR, San Francisco) broadcast "A Handful of Band-Aids," my perspective on the plight of homeless families in Contra Costa County, California. I had written "A Handful of Band-Aids" in the latter part of 2003. Today I'm posting a slightly longer version of the piece used by KQED-FM. In this podcast, I also include information about the Winter Nights Rotating Family Shelter, a worthy nonprofit organization operating in Contra Costa County. Winter Nights is a project of the Social Justice Alliance of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County.
Needless to say, I'm a supporter of Winter Nights. In fact, I used the debut of my science fiction/fantasy novel, "Heroes Arise," to raise funds for the Winter Nights Family Shelter.
