An estimated four thousand homeless people live in Austin according to a report by local advocacy group House the Homeless. The group held its twentieth annual homeless vigil at Auditorium Shores in November. College communities may seem removed from the homeless situation. But as Era Sundar reports, homelessness may be closer to campus than we think.
SOLEMN OCCASION — A photograph of Valerie Godoy, one of three homeless people murdered in Austin in 2012, looks out over Auditorium Shores Nov. 18. She and 143 other homeless people who died this year were honored during a candlelight memorial service.
