Homeless teenagers are often part of a hidden population in Vermont. They may be jumping from couch to couch at
friends’ houses, or they may be camping out in the woods, or sleeping in the
back of restaurants. Local advocacy
groups estimate that more than 1,000 young people are homeless or at risk of
becoming homeless in the state. We talk
with two teenagers who have lived on the streets, and who have found help
through Burlington’s Spectrum Youth
and Family Services program.
Also, we check in with Valley News reporter John Gregg on
the emergence of the political left in New Hampshire’s
Connecticut River Valley. And, we learn the trade of soapmaking from a
master in Middlebury.
