Whole New Worlds

Thousands of people are living in Chicago’s homeless shelters. Some of those shelters are run by Primo Center - Primo Center is the largest provider of services and shelter for homeless children and their families in Chicago. They do things a little differently -- they don’t kick families out. They provide wrap-around mental health services and offer innovative programs including a Girl Scout Troop. Co-hosts Jesse Betend and Ron Brown take you to Primo’s Sangamon shelter to meet the families, hear their stories, and learn how this program is different -- and why it’s so successful. This show is a collaboration between Rivet and Primo Center. Subscribe to the show to hear every episode— and don’t forget to leave a review. To donate to Primo Center text "NewWorlds" to 44321.
