Homeless in Central Illinois

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - In Downtown Bloomington, business owners have expressed concern over loitering outside their stores. Advocates are working on solutions to help hundreds right here in our community.

If you ask what it's like to be homeless in Bloomington-Normal, Andre Moreno would tell you,  "It's just rough out here,"

It's a problem plaguing cities around the country, but in the Twin Cities, homelessness has been an issue for more than a 100 years.

"If you walk around this town at midnight, you'll see people all over the place," Moreno explains. "Most of us are really good people. We're just down on our luck."
