A LOOK INSIDE TENT CITY: You may have heard about Tent Cities sprawling up across America. Middle class American families, who have lost their jobs and homes are pitching tents. They are the new faces of homelessness in America. Many of them are having a hard time finding a job during this down economy.

When I heard the news that a Tent City was rapidly growing in my hometown of Sacramento, just outside of downtown along the American River, I had to visit and find out more about these families.

You may be thinking this isn't an inspiring story, however, I'm sure you'll be surprised after watching this video. I found that, while many tent city dwellers lost most of their material possessions, they haven't lost their sense of self.

Many were hopeful, grateful and were full of dreams. Also find out how this story inspired others to take action, click on this video!
