CENTRAL OREGON -- The annual count of homeless people, known as the Point In Time Count, is coming up next Wednesday. The event counts people who are homeless or in transition in Central Oregon. The Homeless Leadership Coalition will have volunteers conduct a street count of people who are living outside and the homeless living in emergency shelters or transitional housing. The count includes a breakdown of the homeless by age, gender, race, ethnicity as well as veteran or disability status. Using the data, local agencies and programs will target support services to address homelessness in our area.
