Liz James is a humorist and author, who writes and speaks about her experiences of homelessness and foster care. Dr. Greta James is a researcher whose focus is helping not for profits use research to understand the impact of their programs.

In a story based, humorous way, Liz and Greta pair what we know from research and lived experience to address the question of how to create lasting change.
