Seattle's Nickelsville Residents Try To Find New Homes

The homeless encampment known as Nickelsville is set to close on September 1. The city voted down legislation to expand areas for similar homeless campsites. But the City Council has provided $500,000 to relocate Nickelsville residents into permanent shelters and emergency housing.

Mike Johnson is special projects director for Seattle's Union Gospel Mission and he's working on the resettlement of Nickelsville residents. He tells Ross Reynolds about how the move is going.
