Train to nowhere: Twin Cities light rail becomes home for the homeless

Minnesota Public Radio recently spent an overnight outreach shift with Chris Knutson, a member of St. Stephen's Street Outreach team, as a part of a story on the intersection of homelessness and public transit in the Twin Cities.

Here's Chris' take on the situation:

"People that are not in shelter are not going to get the services that people in shelter do, unless there are teams like street outreach that are out meeting people where they're at."
