Notre Dame Stories: Helping the Most Vulnerable

In this episode: helping the most vulnerable.

A report from the White House Council of Economic Advisors declared the war on poverty largely over. A Notre Dame researcher, who helped produce much of the data behind the report, explains that statement, and talks about what can be done to continue to help those in need in the US.

And, two Notre Dame students signed up to spend their summer at a shelter near the US-Mexico border, helping migrant families who are seeking asylum. But they didn’t know the role that shelter – called Casa Vides – would play when the immigration issue exploded.

(Producer’s note: The audio for the Casa Vides story was captured on-site and is extremely raw. It is best to listen through headphones or earbuds for clarity.)
