Deborah shares some shocking revelations about how the funding is used, the organizations on the ground that are left out of the funding equation, organizations with the mentality of “fixing” people without getting to know them and understanding the needs, and the perspective of the residents being affected. Find out what heroes are being overlooked, as well as a few surprises, in this episode of the 411 Live.
