Coming up on today's show:
A report from the U.S. Conference of Mayors shows that homelessness is on the rise in America's biggest cities. Demands for emergency food assistance are going unmet, and housing facilities are turning away the needy due to a lack of resources. We go to cities around the country to hear from the people who are suffering the most.
