   Residents of two St. Ann apartment buildings found themselves unexpectedly homeless Monday night.  

   The City of St. Ann condemned two buildings at the Colonial Apartments complex on Geraldine Avenue.  KSDK-TV reports that one has sewer problems and the other, electrical problems.  

   Residents told the TV station they were given only about an hour to grab what they could and get out.  Others came home from work Monday to find themselves locked out.  

   St. Ann police have stepped up patrols in the area to prevent looting while residents wait to get back in to gather their things.

ATLANTA (AP) — Homeless veterans and other chronically homeless people are being helped by the hundreds in Atlanta, a city that for years has struggled to keep people off the streets.

The city is well on its way to meeting its goal of finding homes for 800 people this year, with already more than 700 in homes.

Jake Maguire, communications director for the 100,000 Homes Campaign, says Atlanta is a true turnaround story that has made a great deal of progress in a short time frame. The campaign is a national group working to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the nation's most vulnerable homeless.

Veterans are getting help from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, too. Nationally, the VA is increasingly viewing homelessness as a permanent problem — not a temporary one.

   CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois has a new law protecting renters if their landlord's property goes into foreclosure.

   Gov. Pat Quinn signed the law Wednesday that says those who buy multifamily properties out of foreclosure to either honor existing tenant leases or give the renters 90 days to move.

   It takes effect in three months.

   The original bill was sponsored by state Sen. Jacqueline Collins and state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, both Chicago Democrats. They say that about 40 percent of families affected by foreclosure are renters who might not know their landlord failed to make mortgage payments.

   Advocates of the bill say it will help avoid pushing many tenants into homelessness by giving them time to find a safe place to live. They also say it will prevent properties from standing vacant.
