Help for unsheltered relatives
Warming shelters for the homeless in Rapid City are well intentioned but ultimately "do more harm than good" says Police Chief Karl Jegeris. He says the shelters are partly to blame for the recent deaths of Connie Red Nest and Ernie Evans. Officials believe they died of exposure in sub-zero temperatures. Rapid City is just one place working against the odds to try and help people-many of them Native Americans-who don't have a safe harbor from weather, violence, and their own addictions. Shelters struggle with the balance between keeping people alive while not enabling drug and alcohol abuse. We'll catch up on the latest strategies for keeping our unsheltered relatives safe?
The program is hosted by Tara Gatewood (Isleta Pueblo) and airs live each weekday from 10-11am on KIDE 91.3FM.
