In this episode, Katie interviews Leslie Foster, President and CEO of The Gathering PlaceDenver's only daytime drop-in center that serves women, children, and transgender individuals experiencing poverty and homelessness.

In the episode, Leslie and Katie discuss the distinct causes, challenges, and experiences of homelessness among women, mothers, and trans individuals. They also contrast these experiences with those faced by cisgender men experiencing homelessness. Leslie details the ways in which communities of women and trans individuals are underserved by traditional poverty and homelessness support organizations, and ways in which their struggles tend to remain “unseen” by the general population. Lastly, Leslie offers surprisingly simple steps we can take to combat issues of poverty and homelessness, and fight the stigma surrounding these issues, in our own communities.
