When homeless shelters are full, families call motels 'home'

Hosted by  • 

This year’s homeless count found three quarters of the 53,000 homeless people remain unsheltered. City and county leaders are building permanent housing -- a long term solution -- while looking for emergency measures like building temporary tent shelters. They also recently passed a law to make it easier to convert motels into homeless shelters.
