Athens Clarke County Nonprofits Unite to Address Surging Homelessness

Athens Area Homeless Shelter

In Athens Clarke County, a network of nonprofits works to aid the growing number of individuals experiencing homelessness in the community. Shea Post is the Executive Director of the Athens Area Homeless Shelter, which serves families facing homelessness. She sat down with Martin Matheny earlier this week to offer her perspective on the issue of unsheltered Athenians.

Alexia Ridley joined WUGA as Television and Radio News Anchor and Reporter in 2013. When WUGA TV concluded operations, she became the primary Reporter for WUGA Radio. Alexia came to Athens from Macon where she served as the News Director and show host for WGXA TV. She's a career journalist and Savannah native hailing from the University of Michigan. However, Alexia considers herself an honorary UGA DAWG!
