CEDAR VALLEY -- Somewhere between the Eagle Mountain monument sign and the small town of Cedar Fort is the temporary home for Roy Gleiter and Deborah Cowden, who are homeless.

It's nothing more than a campsite, really. They have permission from the landowner, a farmer, to stay there until spring planting in approximately two weeks. 

In his late 50s, Gleiter and the 77-year-old Cowden are two of more than 610,000 homeless in the United States.

 

"I want you to be sure about my mom. She is not my mom. She is a friend of the family and we have been taking care of her for 30 years so I call her Mom. She is bipolar schizophrenic," Gleiter said.

They became homeless 10 years ago when they fled to Jackson, Miss.
