Coming up on this week's ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore

The Homeless Intervention and Prevention Program or HIP is part of the Primavera Foundation. The HIP center is there to provide counseling, resources and guidance to Tucson's homeless population and those who are at risk for becoming homeless.

Nearly one-third of Arizona's homeless population lives in Pima County. Mitchell Riley takes us on a visit to the Homeless Intervention and Prevention Center, where they offer specialized help to those who are in need.
