    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Tonight on THV 11 News, Daniel Wilkerson takes a look at the epidemic of nearly 14,000 homeless children living in Arkansas.

    He followed a family who said after the father injured himself in a car accident, they lost the family's home.  Damond Phillips, his wife and two children are now homeless.

    "We have to share a lot," said his son Mareun.   

    The 9-year-old said the thing he misses most is his backyard where he played.

    On "THV 11 News at 6," we explore the causes of child homelessness, find out whether there is help for the Phillip's family and look at the permanent effect homelessness could have on the children.  

    On "THV 11 News at 10," we look at the success rate of programs that assist homeless families.
