City of Lexington counts homeless population

Annual Count Of Homeless Takes Place Countywide

Anderson said they will do a count of the homeless living in shelters in a few weeks and recount again in July.

Volunteers will be going to the Frank Williams Center, 1201 N. 7th St., Kansas City, Kansas, today to conduct the survey, and to the Wilhelmina Gill Services Center, 645 Nebraska Ave., Kansas City, Kansas, on Thursday, she said.

Last month, she made a decision to return to her native Gary, but without a stable home or job - she soon found herself at the Sojourner Truth House.

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the 2017 Point-in-Time Count showed a 4.6-percent drop in homeless men, women, and children in the state from the nearly 9,000 people in 2016. During the count, volunteers from the Cornerstone Rescue Mission, Working Against Violence Inc, and other local organizations locate and survey homeless people.

The data will help the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention when it comes to community planning and the assessment of the homeless services system.

The annual Point-in-Time Count is mandated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and is meant to guide efforts to end homelessness.

The Point-in-Time survey is coordinated statewide in New Jersey by the nonprofit housing organization Monarch Housing Associates.

Volunteers record information including the number of homeless persons, their age and whether they are veterans, Craig said.

"Our goal is to find nobody but we know we will find somebody", she said. The homeless census, as it's called, took place overnight as volunteers went out to count homeless people sleeping on the streets. It's a survey and count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless in Tulsa. "Things like the weather on the day of the count and improved counting strategies can cause the numbers to fluctuate".

According to HUD, the homelessness numbers for Jamestown increased significantly between 2016 and 2017. "Most of the people who sleep outside, it's by choice", Westerman said. They connect you with a counselor who helps you overcome emotional troubles, an agency that helps you discover monetary benefits that you did not realize you were eligible to receive, and a job skills training facility that helps you develop vital skills for specific jobs in your area.
