    New Orleans could become the first US city to eliminate the problem of long-term homelessness.

    An organisation in the city says it can find homes for the city's estimated 670 "chronically homeless" people by 2015.

    More than 100,000 of the US's 600,000 homeless people have been living on the streets for over a year.

    Al Jazeera's Robert Ray reports from New Orleans.
