Governing reports on Broward County's efforts to combat its homeless problem. The homeless were living in a tent city across the street from Fort Lauderdale City Hall. Now they're living in "Homeless Assistance Centers," which offer job and life skills instead of just a place to stay for the night. Though the program is geared towards long-term solutions, critics say that certain kinds of homeless people -- the disabled, the mentally ill -- are not able to live with the restrictions of the centers.
