According to the latest count, there are nearly 47,000 homeless people living unsheltered in Los Angeles County.

Kellie Tillerson, director of housing and employment at the non-profit St. Martin's Hospitality Center in New Mexico, joined Take Two to explain how the program works and whether it could be replicated in other cities like LA.
