Last year's homeless count showed more than 2000 people in Central Oregon don't have a permanent home and this year's count is expected to be even higher. Chris Clouart with the Bethlehem Inn that takes in the homeless says their numbers are fluctuating a lot lately. “At the height of mid December, we were at capacity with 93 individuals, 22 women. As we got closer to Christmas, the numbers drop off but now we're seeing the numbers increase. It's just a normal fluctuation for a facility like ours.” Clouart says they encourage people to reconnect with family members during the holidays and that's why the numbers dipped recently. They're seeing more families needing shelter at the Bethlehem Inn. There currently is a waiting list.
