Homelessness on the rise in America

Despite working every day, one US mother has ended up in a shelter - and she is not alone as situation worsens.

    Three years ago President Barack Obama promised to end homelessness for children and families within a decade.

    Since making that pledge, the number of families facing homelessness has been rising.

    Now there are fears that federal budget cuts will make the problem even worse.
