Portland Homeless Count Finds 6,600

(Portland, OR)  --  The Point-in-Time Homeless Count for the Portland area found more than 66-hundred people were homeless on one night in January.  That included 36-hundred unsheltered people, more than two-thousand people in shelters and 800 people in transitional housing.  It's always considered an undercount because it's done by interviewing people.  Portland City Commissioner Dan Ryan says Multnomah County adds interviews to the process, which makes it more complex and less accurate.  He wants a real time list of homeless people by name.  He's calling on the Joint Office of Homeless Services to change the process.
