A Surprising Journey to Healing the Homeless, Alan Graham

In this episode of Health Fail, Michelle and Zac sit down with Alan Graham, the founder and CEO of Mobile Loaves & Fishes and 2015 Austinite of the Year.

Amidst the heated battle over Austin’s homeless crisis, Alan Graham is a beacon in the community,  committed to solving an intractable situation that is complicated by mental and behavioral health issues and the loss of family and community. Alan shares his journey from commercial real estate developer to founder of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, a ministry that is now supported by 20,000 volunteers, has served more than 5.5 million meals, and includes Community First! Village, a 51-acre master-planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and community support for individuals who were once chronically homeless.
