The one day homeless count taken in January showed 135 homeless people in Crook County compared to 279 last year.

 

But organizers have changed the way they collect data, so you're not comparing the same thing from year to year.

 

Karen Yeargain is the Preparedness Coordinators for Crook County.

 

"The groups that jumped out at us that were alarming or we need to pay attention to is 17 and under and survivors of domestic violence who are experiencing homelessness.  Those are the big categories that pop up or jump out at us when we look at this  year's count."

 

The number of homeless veterans in Crook County did go down in the last year.

 

In 2012 there were 18.  This year there were only 12.

 

Yeargain attributes the decrease to an increase in veterans programs serving this population.
