Colorado Community Media's ongoing series, “No Place to Call Home,” explores the reasons behind the rise in homelessness in Englewood and the response from various parts of the community, from businesses and city government to nonprofits, the faith community and schools.
The series also reports on the challenges homeless people face while trying to regain stability in their lives.
Reporter Ellis Arnold spent two months researching and reporting this second part of the series, which explores the relationship between homeless individuals and law enforcement, the court and other public institutions.
“ ‘Homeless people are criminals’ is a stereotype that conversations about homelessness have to address,” Arnold said. “It’s often much more complicated than that. This part of the series aims to look at the reality of which laws some — but certainly not all — homeless individuals break, the circumstances that surround them and how law enforcement is trying to help.”
Arnold, 23, graduated from University of Colorado-Boulder in 2017 with degrees in journalism and political science. He covers the cities of Englewood and Centennial. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
