THE INTERSECTION: Homeless in Googleville

David Boyer
KALW News / The Intersection

In this episode of THE INTERSECTION's second season, we look at change in the Bay Area from the view of a street corner. In this case, we're parked right outside of Google's headquarters in Mountain View. 

That's where we meet a Googler living in an RV in a company parking lot, a subcontractor living in a trailer on the street and a man living in a van. Find out how they ended up here and what the city of Mountain View is doing to help them. 


"Google doesn't endorse people living in cars or living on campus, they would rather we go get an apartment somewhere."

THE INTERSECTION was made possible with a grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission and support from California Humanities, a nonprofit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
