Today Amelia Knisey of The Tennessean has an important story about homelessness in Williamson County.
Homelessness is on the rise in the richest county in the state, and the people and local officials have yet to make it a priority, leaving it to pastors like Pastor Kevin Riggs and local nonprofits like Gracepointe Church to deal with.
But as the cost of living continues to increase in areas like Franklin and Brentwood, more and more long time residents will feel the squeeze.
Lots of lip service is paid to issues like this around here, but what will residents and local government officials actually be willing to do about it?
