Guest host Patt Morrison and a roundtable of lawmakers and advocates will delve into the problems and solutions to the homelessness crisis tomorrow, Wednesday, from noon to 1:00 p.m.

Complementing the Bay Area's coordinated media effort to focus attention on the issue , KPCC's "AirTalk" will devote the entire second hour of the program to discussing how we can effectively combat homelessness in Los Angeles and Orange County. We'll also hear from a person who recently overcame homelessness and is now advocating for the community.

Share your questions or comments for our guests in the comment section below, or tweet them to @AirTalk. Do you have any suggestions for our lawmakers? What are some of your biggest concerns? Have you recently overcome homelessness? What did you find most difficult?
