ZAC LEVY, AUTHOR OF PROJECT UNHOUSED, a High School senior from Ocean Township, Monmouth County discusses how encountering a homeless teen girl on a trip to Boston with his father opened up his eyes to the issue and prompted him to investigate homelessness in his community. He talks about myths and stereotypes associated with the homeless, how he learned that several of those over age 70 who did not have mental health issues are addiction problems do not quality for local housing programs, and how he’s using proceeds from his book to set up monthly stipends to help those he interviewed for the book.
