JOLIET – A growing homeless situation in Joliet is leaving residents finding areas to occupy as cold weather hits the area.

Homeless residents were recently spotted sleeping outside of the closed K-Mart on W. Jefferson St in Joliet, inside of closed restaurants, and even small wooded areas behind homes in the city.
