How you can help with homelessness in San Antonio

Experts weigh in after KSAT's 'Life in the Shadows'

We ask local experts: “give us one way to help the homeless.”

SAN ANTONIO – I have never received more emails and phone calls than I did after the homeless special KSAT aired in 2005.

The vast majority of the people wanted to know “how can I help?” So, with that in mind, we decided to have experts in the field answer the question, “give us one way to help the homeless.”
