There's certainly a push here locally to end homelessness and help men, women and children, get back on their feet. I'm here with Kim Gembala, director of the Rescue Mission of Roanoke -- just one organization trying to do just that. First, what is the Rescue Mission of Roanoke? On average, how many homeless people stay in your shelter each night? What do the numbers look like: is homelessness on the rise here? ( Numbers show that the number of men in need of shelter and rescue mission services is down. The number of women and children in need of services is on the rise.) Coming up, we'll break down why there's a difference between men and women needing service and a fairly new program that's helping close that gap.
