NATOMAS (CBS13) — The Natomas Unified School District is working to find shelter for two dozen families on the verge of homelessness.

The district says 25 families are unsheltered right now or living in motel rooms. On Wednesday night, the board voted unanimously to use district funds to help those families find housing.
