    Friday | Cape Cod Times

    As we approach the Annual Homeless Person's Memorial Service on Sunday, I ask myself: Is homelessness a public or a private problem? Society likes to frame it as a private problem because it lets us all off the hook for what surrounds us here in Hyannis and across the United States.
