Home is Where You Park Your Mini Van

Back in March, as the pandemic hit, many people across the country found themselves without a safety net. Naida Lavon was one of them. Naida is 67 and for the past few months, she’s been living in her car on the streets of Portland, Oregon. As part of our Hunker Down Diaries series, we bring you her story.

Music this week from Blue Dot Sessions and featuring “Home Again” by Michael Kiwanuka.

The story has support from Humanities New York and National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this production do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
