As 2015 comes to a close, we are taking a look back at some of the discussions we brought you throughout the year.

 This week on Florida Matters (Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 27 at 7:30 a.m.), we bring you excerpts of the shows listed below:

  • Florida Matters: The Supreme Court’s Decision On Same-Sex Marriage

Producer note: Since the Florida Matters on homelessness among Florida's students first aired, Michelle Holmes finished the six-week job training course through the Homeless Empowerment Program. She has been working full-time as a receptionist at a medical office for the last three months.  Michelle and her children, Noah and Emma, are living in a private apartment on the HEP campus in Clearwater. Both children are now excelling in school.
