The Leonard Lopate Show

Why Child Homelessness Is Growing In NYC

Dr. Irwin Redlener, one of NYC’s leading child advocates, joins the Leonard Lopate Show to discuss his new book The Future of Us: What the Dreams of Children Mean for Twenty-First-Century America. He addresses the growing crisis of child homelessness in New York City, and argues that it will only get worse if President Trump's proposed budget cuts and threats to restructure Medicaid become reality.
