On this episode of Redux, we look at poverty on the First Coast.
In Duval County, roughly a third of the families here live on an income lower than what’s known as a “survival budget.”
Then there’s the homeless population on the First Coast, which has grown to more than 3,000, including approximately 2,000 in Jacksonville. We have an open letter from a homeless woman to Mayor Lenny Curry about how the city treats those without shelter.
But, homelessness isn’t exclusive to the urban core. We’ll look at what one organization is doing at the Beaches to help those most in need, help themselves.
We also have an update on the Jacksonville Jaguars and the downtown shipyards project.
