homeless

Marquan Ellis was evicted from his home in Las Vegas, Nevada when he was 18.

His mother battled with a drug and gambling addiction while he stayed at his godmother's house. But he couldn't stay there forever.

He found his way to the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth where he enrolled in the independent living program.

From Texas Standard:

Houston’s controversial ordinance banning public encampments has been in effect for three months. It came as the result of mounting complaints from residents regarding the amount of homeless camps on public property.

While San Antonio has come a long way since ticketing people living in the streets, there are still many issues to address when it comes to the city's homeless population.

The South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless, or SARAH, will conduct its annual Point-In-Time Count of the homeless population in Bexar County tonight. Homelessness remains a problem in San Antonio.

 

Katie Vela is a program manager with SARAH and says homelessness in San Antonio has remained steady.

Most restaurants close their doors for Christmas day, but one is leaving their's wide open: Shish Restaurant in southeast London.

On Dec. 25, they will be serving free, three-course meals to the homeless and elderly.

The idea came after an emotional encounter between two of the managers and an elderly woman.
