City of Lexington counts homeless population

Volunteers fill out forms at The Centre in Santa Clarita as they prepare to participate in the annual homeless count on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018.

Last night, thousands of volunteers in Los Angeles County took to the streets. "We think the actual real number of homeless folks is probably about 750", Doorways Executive Director Yvonne Petrasovits said. The Point in Time Count is a requirement of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, which now supports the Northwest CoC member agencies with $289,952 in competitive grant funding.

"We check for both the unsheltered and the sheltered", Ward said. "These are the first people who asked me, ever asked me, and made it seem like somebody actually cared".

Three have opened in recent years in Gary, including the Veterans Village, Village of Hope and South Shore Commons.

The survey, required by the federal government, is taking place Wednesday and Thursday in Wyandotte County, as well as across the state line in Jackson County, Mo., according to Evelyn E. Craig, president and CEO of reStart, an agency which offers services to the homeless.

If you are experiencing homelessness, please come forward to be counted.

"For the unsheltered, we hit the streets looking in abandoned buildings and under bridges".

In 2017, there were 41 individual homeless while there were 42 homeless in a family in Jamestown.

The coalition defines homelessness as someone who is living in a shelter, transitional housing, on the street or in a place not safe for human habitation.

The survey tracks where people spent the night that night to help plan for services and prevent homelessness, said Ann Thoresen, the senior director of the Atlantic Homeless Alliance and Justice Involved Services at Jewish Family Service. Within an hour an a half, the dozens of volunteers canvased Lexington, visiting almost 100 locations.
