The point-in-time homeless count is about three weeks away, and organizers need volunteers. They already have about 500, but they need 500 more. Here’s why: “The Count, a requirement under federal law, helps communities and the nation as a whole, identify and understand the extent and nature of homelessness, changing trends in this area, and the measure of our success in ending homelessness.” Details:
