It will be several months before we know the results of the homeless count taken in Central Oregon last week. One segment of the homeless population local organizers expect will be down, is homeless veterans. A Housing Voucher Program through the Veterans Administration is helping put a dent in the numbers. Kenny LaPoint with Housing Works helps administer the vouchers. “I had spoken with some service providers who had gone out to the camps and they say they've seen quite a few less veterans at the homeless camps. And they attribute it to the Veteran’s Affairs supporting housing vouchers program. We've received 50 of those within the last twelve months.” Last year the homeless count included about 100 homeless vets. The Voucher Program help take about half of them off the streets.
