California's efforts to get homeless people off the streets are aimed in a number of different directions. The state recently announced a $47 Million package of funding going to tribes around the state, to help house indigenous people.

The package includes $14 Million for the Wiyot Tribe, to open the Jaroujiji Youth Housing Project in Eureka.

David Cobb with the tribe describes the project, meant to get several dozen young people into safe housing.
