This afternoon we should have a better idea about how to approach our local homeless problem, and if it's getting worse. The numbers from the annual "Homeless Count" are being released. Kenny La Point with Housing Works says the Homeless Count is important because it helps them determine causes, address specific needs and generate funding streams for the region. He says the count is a large effort coordinated between many local agencies that help the homeless and others: “We had some great volunteer help this year.  It went very smoothly, we had some good weather, which can change how the count numbers look. But we had some good volunteers and so it was good."  The one-day count was held on January 27th and the results will be released later today.
