Renters in Fresno County need to make about twice the minimum wage to be able to afford the median monthly rent. Conditions like high rents contribute to the ongoing issue of homelessness in the San Joaquin Valley. Moderator Kathleen Schock spoke with people on the front lines of the fight against homelessness: Preston Prince and Doreen Eley from the Fresno Housing Authority, Desiree Martinez from the We Are Not Invisible Foundation, and Pastor Mike Unger from the Madera Rescue Mission.
