A third of the estimated three million homeless people in the United States are families with children. Each year, thousands of homeless families take to the highways in search of work. This program introduces us to several displaced families, and to the often over-burdened people who struggle to help them find employment, shelter, food, health care, and education. Streetlife illuminates the complexity of this growing national problem, and will help encourage a public response based on the real needs of these homeless families.
