Stockton homeless population on streets rises

STOCKTON, CA - Though there is room at the Stockton Homeless Shelter each night, the number of people living outside has risen. On Church Street in Stockton, several tents and other structures are the preferred choice of habitat.

"There's too many people [in the shelter].  It's way too crowded," said Michael Brown, who's been homeless for nearly 10 years.

Shelter director John Reynolds said it's not unusual for people to choose the streets, rather than stay in the shelter.

"In there it's kind of tight.  You're probably two feet from the next guy, while out here you have more room.  If you have all the comforts of home in the tent, you can't blame them," said Reynolds.
