We bring you stories from the home front, and talk with people who are lacking shelter as winter approaches. We'll meet a man who survived in a tent during Super Storm Sandy, and walk the streets with a mother who spends her nights outdoors with her infant son. Plus, we'll take a tour of the former prison in Lorton, Va., and hear about plans to turn it into snazzy new apartments and townhouses.
