KPBS Midday Edition looks at the changing face of homelessness in our county.
The annual Sleepless in San Diego event last weekend brought out a variety of people you'd never expect to see spending the night on the streets downtown. That event is, of course, for charity. But, homeless advocates say there are already a lot of people you'd never expect to see adding to the real homeless population of San Diego. The increasing numbers and the changing face of homelessness threaten to overwhelm our resources.
