This Friday, June 12, there’s a program on WTIU 30 documenting poverty in our area and people’s use of resources to help them overcome poverty.
The show begins at 10 p.m. Here’s its description in the WTIU guide:
“On any given day, there are people in south-central Indiana who need assistance with food, shelter and employment. In many cases, family and friends are the answer to those needs. In other cases, short-term public assistance can help.
But often, people need intensive and on-going support as they work their way back to a stable, secure and safe life. This program, by filmmaker Jo Throckmorton, is the story of three people who are on a journey of recovery.”
I haven’t watched this before, so maybe someone who has can give us his or her thoughts on it. I see from a quick trip to the Google that it received First Place in the 2008 Best in Indiana Journalism Award for “Best Social Justice Reporting.”
