A Sheltered Life was a special report about homelessness by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
It presented interviews with homeless individuals and families and with caregivers, many photos, videos, and statistics. This report appeared in the Star-Advertiser September 7-9, 2014. Unfortunately, it is no longer on the Star-Advertiser website, but HonCC Library does have it available on microfilm. Some excerpts:
