Savannah is preparing to move more than 90 people living in camps on the city’s east side to make way for construction and drainage projects planned for later this year.

The Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless is working with the city on the move. GPB's Sarah McCammon sat down with the agency’s executive director, Cindy Murphy Kelley, to discuss the plan. She asked how much is known about the circumstances of the people living in the camps.
