Bob is 62. He's unemployed, and he sometimes calls our show when he's listening. But here's where Bob's story is different: he calls us from his van. Where he lives. For the past 5 months, Bob has squeezed his entire life within the rectangle of his Dodge Caravan - bed, food, stove. He says he never expected to be living in his car, but that a whole new community of people - suddenly jobless and homeless - are also living behind the wheel. Who are these people? How do they get by? And how does one go from a full-time job to suddenly living alone in a van? Bob lets us into his van and tells us the secrets of surviving when you're homeless in Las Vegas. Rebroadcast.
When "Sandra" was in her 20s, she and her husband didn't pay the bills. Suddenly, they found themselves homeless. She handed over the baby to her parents, and started sleeping in parks and junkyards. She recycled cans to buy food, and she drank from garden hoses. More than 13,000 people were homeless in Clark County last year. So who is homeless and what are they doing to survive?
