"these people are people. god created them just the same as you and me. the more that people don't pay any attention to them the more outcast they become." county commissioner brendan kearns says there's nearly 400 people who are homeless in vigo county right now. he says this summer count will provide a better understanding of how to help those in need. "as a person this is the right thing to do. they're people that need help they're not in this situation cause they want to be" there were many camps.. just like this one.. set up throughout the city. 3 volunteers...organizations.... food banks all teamed up to hand out water.. and learn what resources are needed. "with a little bit of assistance, maybe point em in the right direction toward care, can change their whole circumstances so drastically to where they're not homeless" reyher says if we all gave a little.. it would make a big impact. "all of us are just one step away from that you know, one life event away from being homeless" //////// volunteers will be out at these camps until 7-o'clock tonight. coming up at the top of the hour.. i'll have more on what others are doing to help out. reporting live in vigo county im news 10's richard solomon back to you //////
