Homeless in Humboldt Student Journalist Episode 1
We are a group of four students and one faculty advisor in the HSU Journalism Department.
"Humboldt County — a remote county tucked in the northern reaches of California. Home to redwood trees and about 250,000 people, it is one of the more rural, scenic counties in the state, and there exists an underlying issue that has plagued the county for decades — homelessness. Humboldt county’s rate of homeless individuals is three times higher than the state average. With the onset of COVID-19, things aren’t any better. What are their stories? What can they offer the world? Who can help them through these trying times? We seek to answer these questions and more through our documentary about homelessness in Humboldt County in the time of COVID-19."
