The homeless count in Central Oregon will take place a week from this Thursday: January 27th. The Central Oregon Homeless Leadership Coalition is conducting the one-day count. Volunteers will be conducting surveys in Bend, La Pine, Sisters, Redmond, Prineville and Madras. John Livingston of NeighborImpact says the count helps them better coordinate services:  “A couple years ago we were pretty shocked the number of seniors who were homeless. We didn't expect that high a number. And we worked with different agencies to make sure we're serving seniors better.” The results of the homeless count next Thursday won't be available for several months. Last year, Central Oregon had more than 2000 homeless in the tri-county area.
