Place And Privilege

Sacramento's housing shortage affects everyone, from middle-class renters to homeless residents. We explore the history, politics and economics of housing in California's capital through personal stories of neighbors hit the hardest.

The View From Here: A Year At Encina

California Dream, Undocumented

More than 3 million unauthorized immigrants live in California. Most of these men, women and children come from Mexico. Despite lack of legal status and without a path to citizenship, they are making lives for themselves and their families.

Who Cares

If you're not a caregiver now there's a good chance you'll become one, joining millions of others who make up what is often called the backbone of our long-term health care system. But who cares for family caregivers? How do they care for themselves?
