Homelessness in Montezuma County in many ways exemplifies what homelessness looks like across rural America. KSJD's Tom Yoder talks with Deb Keel and Laurie Knutson from the Bridge Emergency Shelter in Cortez about how homelessness has changed in the past few years, how they go beyond just providing a warm meal and a bed for their clients, and what to expect at their upcoming "Soups Of The World" event.
