Housing Week conclusion: Homeless advocate speaks his mind

He not only works with homeless people, he WAS a homeless person once. Paul Boden put that behind him 40 years ago, but he still works hard to see to the needs of people who do not have regular housing, as Executive Director of theWestern Regional Advocacy Project.
