Greensboro IRC on WUNC's The State of Things
At the Interactive Resource Center, a nonprofit day facility designed to assist Greensboro’s homeless population, clients can seek housing counseling, job skills training and get a warm shower or a meal. But the IRC also boasts a sculpture garden, a newspaper and other creative projects that get their clients involved in the community and give them opportunities to share their experience with others.
Author Lorraine Ahearn, who covered the Triad’s homeless as the metro columnist for the Greensboro News & Record for years, talks with The State of Things host Frank Stasio about the self-help model the IRC operates under and how the center is truly making a difference in that region of the state. Also joining the conversation is Liz Seymour, IRC director, and Brain Clarey, editor of YES! Weekly in Greensboro.
