Ozarks at Large for Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Aug 15, 2018

On today’s show, the University of Arkansas is preparing to clear a patch of land that has become a homeless encampment for dozens of people. We hear how several nonprofit agencies are working to make the transition as seamless as possible for the community. Plus, Todd Sanders is a neon artist in Austin, but many of his pieces are in Bentonville. He’ll lead a stroll of his work this month, and we’ll talk to him from his studio.

Organizations that work with people experiencing homelessness have mobilized resources like never before as the University of Arkansas prepares to clear a property on 19th Street in Fayetteville. Advocates estimate 80 to 100 people will be displaced once the woods are cleared. The NWA Continuum of Care has coordinated with member organizations to provide information about what is happening, as well as temporary and permanent housing assistance.
