Even more homeless on the streets and in shelters
From CBS 2:
More people are living on New York City’s streets now than at this time last year.
As CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported, the number of homeless on the streets — 3,357 — is down by 24 percent since 2005, according to city data. But the number is up by 177 people, or 5 percent, compared to last year.
Overall, there are more than 56,000 people living in city shelters — a number that continues to grow, according to the DHS.
