SoCal residents concerned over becoming homeless, call issue a 'crisis'

An exclusive Eyewitness News poll conducted by Survey USA reveals nearly half of Southern California residents consider homelessness a "major problem." An additional 20 percent call it a "crisis."

About 20 percent are even "very worried" that they will one day become homeless, while 26 percent are somewhat concerned.

When asked what the likelihood is that they might become homeless in their lifetime, people polled put the odds at 30 percent.
