From Joe & Steve: Anna Hamilton is well known across Cook County. She's an entrepreneur, has owned multiple businesses in the community, and is never afraid to say how she feels about some of the most important or sensitive topics facing the county.

Anna is playing a key role in addressing the local housing crunch, including the formation of Hamilton Habitat, along with her sister Sarah. (You can read Boreal's exclusive interview about Hamilton Habitat here.)

In today's episode, Joe and Steve talk with Anna about housing, drug use in Cook County, what crime does to families and the community, and why Anna has dedicated so much of her time to addressing these topics.
