How Anderson Cooper sees homeless people now

Recently, Anderson Cooper and the crew of 60 Minutes spent some time with our Open Table Nashville community. In the hours he spent with us, learning about the lives that were changed, he, too, was transformed.

When asked about the impact this report had on him, he had this to say:

It really changes your perception of the problem of homelessness and the people who end up being homeless…we all have support networks. We all have family and friends and a job and things that support us when we trip. These are people who have burned through those support networks. And that’s really the only difference.

We are grateful to CBS, 60 Minutes and Anderson Cooper for helping tell our story. Watch  more, here:
