    Laura Green Zeilinger, Executive Director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, provides an overview of the results of the 2014 Point-in-Time-Count of people experiencing homelessness in the United States. With unparalleled community collaboration using Federal strategy since 2010, we've witnessed an overall 10 percent decline in the total homeless population, and of those a 25 percent decline in those who are living unsheltered. Family homelessness is down 15 percent; 53 percent fewer families are living unsheltered. Chronic homelessness is down 21 percent; 14 percent unsheltered. There's been a slight downturn in youth homelessness, but particularly noteworthy are the declines seen among Veterans. Veteran homelessness is down 33 percent, unsheltered down 43 percent.

      Richard has lived homeless in San Francisco for three years. He first hit homelessness with his son, and the two of them lived on the streets together. Richard simply wants someone to listen to him. While I was setting up my camera he kept saying thank you over and over again. Richard was overjoyed someone payed attention to him and was interested in his story. Richard is a veteran, and San Francisco's Homeless Outreach Team, also know as the HOT Team, also listened to him. The good news is that Richard is soon to be in housing! .
