At last count, there were 800 homeless people living in Sioux Falls and more than one third of those are children. This week new numbers on the homeless population will be released, will we see a decrease or are they on the rise?
Several organizations are working hard to help those less fortunate get back on their feet. On this week's edition of Inside KELOLAND we'll talk with the Sioux Empire Coalition Coordinator as well as Sioux Falls' Homeless Coordinator about their efforts.
