4:22 am
stopped in my car and. i stopped on purpose couch i was very. i just didn't know what to do i don't have anyone here. for many people college is the door to a better opportunity but that opportunity doesn't always come with a roof and 4 walls according to the u.s. department of education and 2017 there were an estimated 32000 homeless call these students in the united states so what is being done if anything to address the issue we're here in our studio to discuss this day she's a recent graduate of the university of maryland eastern shore sarah gold for a grab she's a professor of higher education policy at temple university and founder of the hopes and for college community and justice barbara duffield she is the executive director for schoolhouse connection a leading nonprofit working to eradicate student homelessness and joining via skype from chicago illinois cornell
4:23 am
a student at the paul university welcome everyone to the stream it's really good to have you i'm going to start on dom's instagram account i have checked ahead of time so i won't embarrass a i'm just going to scroll down here so we can have a look. smiley smiley beautiful locations very nice you would not know from your instagram account from your social platforms without looking a little bit closer than your student studying and you don't have a definite home to go home today. can you explain a little bit more for us. yeah and i think a big part of that for me is. understanding that the perception and i guess the dominant narrative around homelessness is is that homeless people are smart homeless people ready are dirty or not typical of of achieving. or contributing to society and i really you know now i'm being more vocal about my
4:24 am
experiences but i think for me there was always that underlying sense of shame and you know loneliness it can be kind of lonely so i didn't want anyone to look at me different and i want to show people by what i'm capable of achieving in the content of my character than more than just my experiences and more than just a homeless person i'm so much more than that. was set up a time when you had to just come out and say i don't have any right to stay tonight and you were studying. absolutely. i've dealt with homelessness my entire life. losing my parents at a young age my mother to addiction and my father to incarceration you know i say that i was sort of orphaned by the war on drugs. which is the story of of
4:25 am
many folks around the world it's the same story of black and brown youth in the south side of chicago it's. we're going to reconnect with dom he's frozen literally because he's in chicago illinois and it's very cold out. get back to you in just a moment exactly but picking up on that story i wanted to share this one from race a former member of the stream team and she writes in a close friend of mine lived in her car for some time in college she did great in school she was super outgoing and involved and so it was hard to notice that she was struggling she later told us after she found a place to live but they had the idea that someone could be struggling and still have a full social life in college and no one else know that they are struggling how does that. basically you have me. in the press the only thing that i had to look towards too and only then i can have my name is my degree earned it.
4:26 am
only will have that only a close member or friends know about it in a dry to help me the best way it's possible try picking up jobs and everything but when i got home. and went straight to promise place and they held a spot for me every time so i didn't really house hop from place to place but was resign and showed her and to graduate promised place tell us about that promise place is a new shelter and capitol heights maryland so basically it housed. 10 boys and 10 girls ages 14 to 25. so. help will school. in will in the try to get you on the right track but you have to work hard to get where you need to go home so this take you down. so how do you even know that a student who's going to class is turning up for school is actually talking with some way to live you know the only way that you know is ask them i mean that's the
4:27 am
truth and i think the reason that most people don't know about this problem is they're not asking the questions we ask students how they spend their time working and we ask if they're studying but we don't check on them to make sure they have a roof over their heads and you'd be surprised how many times a student who looks is kind of fronting like they have it together did you see did see dom's instagram see how they live in his press life on instagram he absolutely is and he's doing it as he said because there are consequences to him not doing that he will be perceived as not a serious student if he does not present that front but behind the scenes the struggle that's going on is undermining their academic performance over. yeah i was thinking you know d.j. what you said about keeping your eye on the prize i think a lot of people think that because a student a person is homeless education will be less important but in fact the truth is it makes it more important because it's the way out. i'm so glad that you're back with us your skype froze for
4:28 am
a minute but i wanted to give you this tweet we got from the us leon who says this is not surprising when we hear about public housing places with no hot water or heating especially in the u.s. 80000 people in chicago are sleeping on the streets this winter let's examine the causes behind homelessness in the u.s. students aren't any different from the rest and so just to give our audience an idea of what people in chicago are facing right now i wanted to show this headline from the chicago tribune dangerous deep freeze a weather alert running list of everything that's closed in the city of chicago which is facing record breaking low temperatures. talk to us about what it's like to be a student without a dedicated place to go in a place like that. in a place that is so cold and a place that and when i say call they don't just mean temperature i live in the city of chicago where there are always people around every corner and i think we're
4:29 am
so desensitized to that fact that we sort of just hop on over them and you know go on to our jobs but they're just like us and the reality is that a majority of americans can't afford a 500 dollar emergency so we're all close to 2 to homelessness and for me personally having slept in shelters and cars and parks my whole life. it's. it's too chilly there pun intended but it's you know it's scary and it's sad and sometimes you just have to do things to survive and you have to keep going you have to keep getting that degree because you know it's your only way out. and not everyone has the opportunity to go to school so we need to make education a right for all regardless of income station how you judge going getting you education and then also just making sure that you know you'll surviving because if
4:30 am
you don't have a regular place to stay or so that's huge issues as well just getting the next meal . when i come back home on the washington d.c. have a job at waking is that what's that head since high school basically when i come home from school and they held my position so i have a little bit of change to get food in the necessities need it so some situations kind of different but i kind of head of a little tiny bit of stability with money yeah so this is really important because the fact that you were able to have a job provided some help i think a lot of people assume that homeless college students are homeless because they're not working and are avid. since collected over years and years shows they are they are getting financial aid and they are working but the fact is that financial aid pace far less than it used to work pays far less than it used to and so it's
4:31 am
possible to be using all these forms of support and still not making ends meet i want to pick up on the idea of food because some college students are facing so much and food insecurity is a part of that so i want to show you this this is from the chronicle of higher education and this is frankie frankie is a student and he also represents 2 year and technical college students in minnesota and he talked to the stream about the issue he sees as the problem means for you to say in the reason that we are facing homelessness in food insecurity on our campus is because of the high cost of tuition often students have to make a choice whether they're going to classical greek where they're going to work to pay off their student loans and. students who should come in the classroom and right now are students are being graded on how well you can and. so there he talks about of course the high cost of tuition and barbara how do you
4:32 am
go about addressing the vat because that doesn't seem like it's changing anytime soon and there are there are macro issues and there are micro issues and one of the biggest challenges that we see is yes are the higher cost the financial aid doesn't pay for all of the cost the cost of attendance etc but also for students who are experiencing homelessness particularly under aged 24. but just getting financial aid is a challenge so we see over and over and over again calls from youth who can't document their homelessness who are being told to go stay in a shelter if one exists to find evidence of a primal death certificate or some other documentation of their homelessness in order to get financial aid so that's one major challenges is just even to be able to get what you have what you are entitled to by your by virtue of your income if you are experiencing homelessness and you don't have a parent and you're under age 24 that's a hurdle right there i guess what i'm finding really interesting is how many
4:33 am
students and then colleges are working out we need to do something i want to show you something which is the brewing shelton this is in california and you can see what some students and i call each state to get together and help their students who don't know have you don't have any way to live have a look. she your pastor here all of the church in santa monica california we are the proud host of the rand paul in show. we're going to ruin shelter because we became very aware of a dire need at u.c.l.a. we found that there were a number of still sleeping in odd places on earth shelter is a place where it seems like people who are just like me who are just trying to get an education you can't really do that safely that kind of living in fear for their own seat on top of having to the school. say i'm just beginning to wonder if more and more realizing how many of the students don't know where they're going to sleep
4:34 am
i think that there is a growing awareness of colleges and that's partly because there's been more data generated to help them understand it but i do want to point out that the bruins shelter was not created by u.c.l.a. the bruins shelter was created by a student and the student activists and they did it with their own money i mean the student who created that did it by not using money his parents were giving him and putting it aside for other people these are charitable solutions the student generated in the powerful but they are not systemic solutions to the problem that we're facing right i mean we didn't see u.c.l.a. decide to create more affordable housing for their students we didn't see them increase and create a new scholarship program to cover students housing right we didn't see changes at the state policy level to make it so there were incentives for developers to create affordable housing for low income students what we saw were students taking care of each other which is great but with the numbers that we're looking at it's
4:35 am
a band-aid. so i wanted to share one story n. a few solutions that he tweeted us this is from jose rivera perez who says i came from puerto rico to pursue education at brooklyn college my 1st year i was homeless for a few months i had no place to live and i often had no money to eat one entire week i was outside living in the street until someone of allowed me to stay in his apartment i was grateful because at least i was able to find a place to sleep for 2 years on the floor because this person had no space in his apartment and he goes on to say though as a recommendation for what should happen in future a way that colleges can start is by their staff being empathetic with individuals having hardship often i shared my experience with my professors and staff but received no empathy for my circumstance there's been a can you talk to us about the struggle in the hurdle of making sure the people on campus hear you hear your struggle and then do something about it. so basically i reached out. my pride to kind of get to me it got to me maybe like the 1st year
4:36 am
but then after a while while 8. i found out that can go to school for free to wish a waiver so i had to reach out to the school had mentors there help me get a waiver for the house so the money for the 2. got that back and i was hoping me get food and everything it won't change in that year what was it about the 1st year to the 2nd year that you said i'm actually going to go reach out for help. then i want to show going anymore i just wanted to try to help other people to know that there's more people and i know some people to that went to the same stuff but we all came together kind of in everything we needed from food we needed laundry detergent is one of those. money for laundry we hope that they can i'm going to show you
4:37 am
a graduation picture right here the world is going to see it right now when you look at that picture. right there you go what do you say i was. through for years debt free he. did not get. so proud of the herd. it was the me are remarkable i was actually pregnant with my daughter in a picture so the. really see. my capping are going to show everybody you can any day now happen to you determine your fate you do it at the expert help if you need it to help you survive dhamma going to go back to instagram account i love this picture here of you with. bernie sanders here u.s. senator and coupling that some time ago. currently in that picture we
4:38 am
have a tweet way he's talking about why if we can put 700000000000 a year into the military why can't we i the lowest student debt or make public colleges and universities and free if that actually happened would we not hear stories like yours and like deja nays and many other thousands of students who are struggling just to stay in school because they don't have somewhere to stay and they don't have enough food to eat but that will that be a game changer. oh i asked absolutely and that was a huge reason why i supported bernie sanders and why now i support alexandra. critelli and the shoes and plan to tax the wealthiest in our country to ensure that all people who want to have a higher education or to learn a trade have the right to do so and it's not just a privilege for
4:39 am
a wealthy few i think kids essential that we not only some spending so much in the military but also you know abolish student debt i mean we bailed out the banks in 2008 when they crashed our company with their greed and recklessness i think it's time for for students and young people to get a bailout so that they don't face a death sentence their entire lives. picking up on that i want to share this comment we just got on you tube someone writes in that it's not surprising that college students end up homeless because post-secondary programs price gouge them left and right it's difficult to maintain affordable housing in a living while then keeping up with that so one more experience there but barbara i want to go to you with a solution potentially this is jose who i read a little bit earlier he says colleges can build partnerships with social service agencies government human services businesses and community based organizations to connect students with various forms of services financial help and good paying jobs
4:40 am
you see that happening in places we definitely do we see some network starting you know there's a pipeline into college homelessness and that is high school homelessness many students experience homelessness and high school and there is a system indicate 12 system you've got a point person a liaison who's charged with connecting all the dots between communities that has not been yet translated fully to higher education so we do see states taking taking that idea of having a designated liaison or person at institutions of higher education and they they they then become the person to connect with community services to connect with housing connect connect with food and to connect with that pipeline to college homelessness which is everything that happened before. of you talking to travel know from the daily show people can go online and see talks about food insecurity and students and student homelessness is this issue i know you. all talking about it right now is this issue being talked about enough do people
4:41 am
know that students are struggling it's growing i mean i can absolutely tell you that the number of people who are in the high powered positions of leadership is absolutely growing the number of programs is growing too you know i want to highlight that the chicago housing authority has a remarkable partnership with the city colleges of chicago where they understand that the best way to support people who are current. living in public housing or using vouchers the best way to support them to really make them economically secure is to help them get through college and they're doing things for example like when a student is living in public housing and they're in the city colleges of chicago and they've lost their financial aid maybe because of their grades or because it's time doubt they're stepping up to pay their tuition i think that's remarkable and that's a game changer and we've seen programs like that coming out of los angeles and coming out of tacoma and so we are seeing some promising practices and i think we have a long way to go but you know to even see the faculty wake up i get e-mails every day from faculty who say we want to do better by students like these but we don't
4:42 am
know how and you have to tell us where the resources are you have to help us get trained and some of them by the way say you know i'm an adjunct and i live in my car too and so we have a big problem here right this is not going to be a one off if these wonderful students are struggling and the people who teach them are also not making a living wage the truth is that public higher education as an entire system is being starved of the resources it needs i would also say to you that you know we it's not as though the chicago tacoma albany. you know you see at long beach lots of institutions are doing something so what we're trying to do is to collect those best practices whether it's identifying students housing students community partnerships student parents and really collecting those best practices so that's one piece that we've tried to play is really so that institutions and communities don't have to reinvent the wheel they can see what others are doing that's great and we have an active conversation both barbarous organization and my organization
4:43 am
and others lead an active conversation online that hash tag real college where those organizations and leaders at whatever talk about the stuff that they're doing because they're actually kind of invisible too and the students come in and they say here's what i need and another program says i can do that and some entrepreneur jumps in and says i'm willing to find a solution what we do. i don't have yet to be honest though are the folks with the big money the really wealthy foundations the really powerful senators who control the committees they're not yet paying attention but i promise you they will soon they're even big money and i'll go to you with this but you mention big money and so it really begs the question that a lot of that big money is going in other directions but still on college campuses i want to give you an example of this art here you have our motivation sara from my humble vantage from the causes of this are rising tuition amid the warfare and stagnant levels of financial aid to name 3 a few and he goes on to explain what
4:44 am
a minute he warfare is it refers to newer dorms that have gyms cetera that have raise the costs of campus housing beyond market rates only a good deal in a few major urban markets and bad when forced to be housed on campus and other so this idea of beautiful looks serious dorms that have the state of the art equipment they have gems those are the things that some people feel they deserve on college campuses and here in the u.s. college is often seen as a privilege and not a right so there are obstacles here that you're up against how do you tackle those . i think it and everyone's kind of been talking about this since it's really human izing issue and having young people or people struggling in general parking about their experiences because the fact is this is a hidden crisis and college is at the end of the day our business and don't really want to highlight this because the fact is homeless students can't always pay their
4:45 am
their tuition so i think it's understanding the root causes of homelessness it's understanding that when health care is not a right in this country. and that mental illness you know attributes to homelessness so much what i think about here is chicago the cook county jail is that the largest mental health facility one of the largest in the country that is just unconscionable when i think about you know the how the prison industrial complex and mass incarceration attributes to the homelessness my father was incarcerated and you know that just led to me becoming homeless and alone and that's the case for so many people it's it's really understanding that the root causes and once we have a cultural shift and greater empathy in our society i think that we can finally. change in policy i do i want to give a shout out to to poor i've got them here all my laptop because that's one of the organizations to help you have somewhere safe to stay while you are studying many
4:46 am
i'll end with this this is for those of you who are watching and might need help to specific resources include local transitional living programs and food pantries you can call this hotline if you're here in the u.s. and of course you can tweet them as well thank you guys thank you for us so much a quest see online next time take everybody. to. july on al-jazeera will the conservative new democracy be victorious in the snap elections we bring you the latest as greece votes
