Families with children and little money for housing can end up sleeping at the homes of friends and relatives, or in their cars, or outdoors.
Douglas County has an answer for homeless young people, with and without parents: Casa de Belen. It provides transitional housing for homeless young people and their families to get back on their feet.
We learn more about it as our series Out in the Cold focuses on Douglas County.
Penny McCue of Casa de Belen joins us, along with Mike Fieldman, executive director at UCAN, which provides homeless services in Douglas and Josephine Counties.
