What's Wrong With This Picture
By Constance Bosley Calhoun
Families with children now make up more than a third of America's homeless. Many are working, but the combination of low wages and skyrocketing housing costs leaves them too poor to support a household. The families in this video offer first-person insights into the realities of the homeless working poor.
