Michael Newberger is a senior at Flagler College. He’s the co-editor of “The Gargoyle,” Flagler College’s newspaper. During his time at WWFF11 he spent time getting to know the Homeless Voice’s editor, Mark Targett.
Mark Targett, the editor of the Homeless Voice, has been with COSAC shelter since it’s incepetion and has been a key part of its leadership ever since. Targett edits the entire newspaper from his home in New Jersey by getting all the pages emailed to him.
He’s overcome his own personal struggles with addiction and still remains dedicated to the shelter despite living hundreds of miles away.
The students were lucky enough to catch Targett at the shelter during one of the trips he takes down to Florida every two months. In the video below he discusses the impact of the Homeless Voice in both the community and the lives of the residents.
