After nearly 2 1/2 years, the Street View Podcast team comes together one last time to give some insight and perspective on the issue of homelessness. The team talks mental health, affordable housing, drug abuse, rehabilitation, tent cities, parting thoughts and how everyone you meet is on their own timeline. As much as we want people to be on our timelines, we must meet people where they are and help them how we can in that place. The Dallas Public Library's Homeless Engagement will continue to provide one-on-one assistance and engagement programs to people experiencing homelessness.

Join the team for a special "Folk" edition of Street View Podcast. The team is joined by Bill Smith, a library associate on the Fine Arts floor and one of his guitar students, Wayne. The library's music classes are open to anyone - from home school kids and homeless adults - and have successfully ignited people's passion for music. Wayne shares his story on becoming homeless and plays a few tunes for the group.
