Central Oregon is holding its homeless count today. People who don't have a permanent residence to call home are encouraged to get counted. Jon Livingston with NeighborImpact says this count is ordered by the federal government to get a snapshot on the homeless problem in the country. “The folks who are doing the counting are closely tied to the resources. So come out and get counted and learn of the resources. Many people haven't been in this situation before and they don't know what's out there.” Some of the locations the count include the Family Kitchen in Bend, the La Pine Community Kitchen, the Redmond Senior Center, the Sisters Food Bank and COCC.
