It's a problem everyone has heard about but few realize exists in their own backyards. Homelessness.
In this week's Standard Times, we explore issue in depth and show why recent data indicates that homelessness among children in North Kingstown is rising.
Local experts from every related aspect of the issue weigh in with what they think is the reason ... and what can be done to alleviate the problem.
In addition, find out about a local church's trip down to the Dominican Republic, what they learned, what they did and how the experience changed them.
And, if that wasn't enough, we'll tell you about a special trip juniors and seniors of Exeter-West Greenwich took to the ACI and how the message they heard won't be forgotten any time soon.
All that and more in this week's Standard Times!
