  • Video: Sacramento considers Seattle's homeless camp model

    Seattle has granted permits for three tent cities – temporary encampments of up to 100 homeless men, women and children that are designed to connect the residents with affordable housing options and social services. The camps operate under strict codes, prohibiting alcohol, drug use and registered sex offenders. City officials and camp organizers say the facilities are designed to serve as a springboard for homeless people into permanent housing, although it’s too early to tell whether that’s happening.
