2013 Homeless Numbers for Central Oregon Up Slightly


The final count from the one day count taken back in January was 2198.

 

For the last three years in central Oregon, the homeless numbers have been similar.

 

Racheal Baker is the co-chair of the Homeless Leadership Coalition and has been analyzing these numbers for the last eight years.

 

"The numbers say homeless continues to incrementally increase in central Oreogn.  What is alarming is the youth increase.  There are 914 youth under the age of 17 who are homeless and the number of people who have been continually homeless more than a year includes 304 children."

 

Last year there were 2,132 homeless in the tri county area. This year we saw an increase of 66 people.

 

The last couple years, the homeless numbers in central Oregon have remained fairly stable.
