A total of 738 adults and 108 children were counted. While most people experiencing homelessness in our area are staying in local shelters, 65 unsheltered individuals and 141 people staying in the City’s cold weather shelter were counted this year. The statistics above represent the 77.0% of adults experiencing homelessness (568 people) who completed the Homeward point-in-time survey.
