A construction worker carries lumber for the roof of a building being renovated in the Colonial Village public housing complex in Norwalk.

Last week, homelessness was officially declared a public health crisis in Connecticut. And the lack of affordable housing remains a major issue here in Connecticut. Today, we get an update on affordable housing and hear how some towns are addressing it.

We learn about a housing model known as cohousing, and hear from a co-housing collective based in Massachusetts.

Later, New York Times global health reporter Stephanie Nolen joins us to discuss her year-long trip around the globe to investigate how the world’s most vulnerable communities are addressing mosquito-borne diseases.
