Word on the Street: Homeless App

A new app allows people to track the homeless across the city.



The Map the Homeless allows users to share sightings of homeless people.



Organizers of the app say that homelessness is a big problem in the city that needs to be taken care of.



Homeless advocates say it's more harassment than help.



News 12 took to the streets to find out what residents thought about the app.
