Hamilton County may have a place for Maslow's Army to set up. The group has been handing out food and supplies to the homeless on Fountain Square, but have been told they can't stay -- Sunday was the nonprofit's last day at that location. County Administrator Jeff Aluotto recommends using the plaza outside the Justice Center.

Advocates say that's because there are homeless people beyond the ones most visible on the streets, and there aren't enough beds to help everyone.
