A child’s perspective on homelessness

Kim Ahern and son Jack, 9, lived at Nickelsville, the only tent city in King County that allows children on a long-term basis, as she searched for housing after moving to Seattle in April 2010. This was a part of a special project on family homelessness called “Invisible families: The homeless you don’t see.” This project was awarded a 2011 National Edward R. Murrow Award for Video Feature Reporting and a 2011 Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism for Multimedia Reporting.
