"Catching Homelessness" Author Visits Ashland


Josephine Ensign dedicated herself to helping homeless people by giving them health care at a free clinic.  Then her entire life turned upside-down, and she too ended up homeless for a time. 

She is back under a roof, the author of the book Catching Homelessness, and the head of a project at the University of Washington that aims to help homeless young people.  Dr. Ensign visits Ashland tonight (April 16th) for a lecture on her work; she stops by the studio for a preview.
