This past week, I’ve been busy working on a piece for The Fiscal Times about the homeless situation in Williston. Due to the boom and the thousands of Americans who have arrived to the area looking for a place to stay, housing costs have ballooned, with the average modest 2-bedroom apartment going from about $500 a month to $2,500 practically overnight. The situation has created hardship for many people looking for opportunities here, forcing even those with decent-paying jobs to live in tents or cars. I had the pleasure of spending time with the Andreson family, who is living out of a tent in a campground. My photographer friend Will Christiansen took a few snapshots of their life.
