A man does dishes in the kitchen at the Faith Mission, a homeless shelter, in Elkhart, Indiana on April 8, 2009.  Elkhart has seen a surge in unemployment in the last year from 4.5% in 2008 to 20% this year and Obama has visited the town three times, including his first stop after arriving in Washington as the U.S. President to promote "bail out" and stimulus spending during the current global recession; the main building of the Faith Mission is located in the former site of the RV Manufacturing Museum and Library.
