The second piece profiles the Vet Camp, a Eugene Safe Spot camp managed by Community Supported Shelters (CSS) that provides tents on elevated platforms to homeless veterans. And the third piece talks to Father Brent Was about what he calls structural sin, "That institutionally our country is set up in a way that is sinful and unjust.
