Lost in America
Produced by: Helen Borten
Four people living on the edge--drug addicts, a prostitute and a blind woman--recount their journeys to a new life, revealing the connections between home and homelessness along the way. Producer Helen Borten brings us "Lost in America." This program won an EMMA award from the National Women's Political Caucus for Best Radio Documentary.

Program Credits

Lost in America was produced by Helen Borten, with special thanks to Ellen Baxter, a pioneer in the field of housing for the homeless. The show was mixed by Marilyn Ries. Sharon Zak, Bill Adams, Lynn Tarry, and Roosevelt Douglas all moved into single-room occupancy residences, a type of housing for the homeless that includes social workers on the premises and government subsidized rents. Lost in America originally aired as part of "A Sense of Place", written and produced by Helen Borten, and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts.
