One charity says it's struggling to bring emergency aid to homeless children and orphans in Sandy’s aftermath. The Covenant House, which provides aid to homeless youth in 18 locations, saw its numbers rise drastically following the superstorm.
“Last night, we sheltered about 1,000 homeless young people from storm-affected states and woke up this morning and the world was upside down in some of those states,” said Kevin Ryan, who runs Covenant House.
Ryan said the situation was severe in New Jersey and Manhattan. "We are struggling, frankly, to provide emergency evacuations for all of these kids." Find out how you can help here.
