We Heart Seattle - Seattle has experienced increasing homelessness over the past decade with many city and county programs and agencies coming up short when it comes to solutions.  But over the past few years, a not for profit group made up of mostly volunteers has had some success in clearing homeless camps and even helping those who live in them with help finding shelter and treatment for addiction. On this edition of Northwest Now, we'll talk to We Heart Seattle about their efforts that have received both praise and criticism from public officials.
