Orange County supervisors on Tuesday approved spending $170,000 to provide food and shelter for at least 250 homeless people this winter at two National Guard armories. Supervisors hope that with additional state and federal funding, the program will be able to shelter the homeless for 120 days, beginning in December. In past years, the county scrambled to keep the shelters open as long as possible.

The men straggle into the small Eastside church as the evening sun dips behind the downtown skyscrapers. Exhausted and dirty, they take turns showering in the adjacent office bathroom, then wait quietly on wooden benches outside the church for dinner. When darkness falls, they unroll their sleeping bags on the church pews and bed down for the night--if not comfortably, at least safe from the perils of street life.
