Eva Thibaudeau is the vice president Coalition for the Homeless. They've received a grant from JPMorgan Chase & co to kick start the LEAP program. LEAP stands for "Landlord Engagement and Assistance Program," which is designed to help Landlords rent to the homeless, who are likely to by using subsidies. We discuss why landlords like the program and how this kind of work, done by non-profits, aided by private companies and our local government, has helped our Houston area reduce homelessness by over 60% since 2010. Harvey obviously authored a spike in homelessness which means this is a great time to volunteer for the Org or donate to its programs: www.HomelessHouston.org  & The Way Home: www.ThewayHomeHouston.org
