On The Margins

Every day in the Triad, families live on the edge. Some are looking for a home they can afford. Many others are just one bill away from eviction. The housing problems here are rooted in our history and shape our present and future, and the safety net meant to protect our most vulnerable citizens plays a major role. 

On The Margins is a one-hour documentary including three stories from WFDD's investigation into housing struggles in the Triad.
