    Grand Junction - There's trouble brewing in one downtown Grand Junction neighborhood. Neighbors are speaking out against what they claim is gangs of homeless people taking over Hawthorne Park along 5th Street. City leaders said they know about the problem and working on how to figure out some sort of plan for the future.

    Homeless people hanging out in the park Friday afternoon told NewsChannel 5 they do not have anywhere else to go. They said the problem is transient people who come through town cause problems and leave, not them.

    Philadelphia overwhelmed by the homeless, turning many away
    Thu, Sep. 15, 2011 - Inside the waiting room of the Appletree Family Center at 15th and Cherry Streets, women and children, plus a few men, fill the seats. A young mother nurses a tiny baby. A little girl sleeps on a woman's lap. Fidgety toddlers color in notebooks.
