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.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports.
