We have been doing some internal on panhandling in Indianapolis. Mike got some hands on experience with our Outreach Worker, Ryan, when they went out one day and panhandled to see what it was like for our youth who participate in panhandling. Mike also got the chance to interview several different organizations around the city to hear what their experience has been with people panhandling. Check out the podcast to hear all about his experience.
