Gates Foundation joins others in goal to cut homelessness

The Gates Foundation and other partners have committed $60 million toward helping homeless families in Washington state. One family in particular is 25-year-old Jackilin Abiem, of Sudan, right, and her 17 month old son, Nassir Getdet. Abiem is expecting her second son to be born in two weeks to join her family at their home at Katherine's Place, a local nonprofit offering affordable housing and support services.
