Julie said, "(My team) successfully interviewed 13 homeless individuals, with only 2 others declining to talk with us. We almost missed a few of them because they didn't 'look' homeless, which underscores the fact there are many faces of homelessness."
The Point in Time Count is intended to provide a snapshot of a community's homeless population. It is one way to collectively understand the scope and breadth of homelessness in our nation and our individual communities. The count is an important effort that ensures the voices of people experiencing homelessness are heard and efforts are made to provide appropriate services. It also helps communities develop more effective plans and measure progress toward ending homelessness.
