Lamar County Homelessness Coalition Organizes Local Point-In-Time Count of Local Homeless

The Lamar County Homelessness Coalition organized a local Point-In-Time Count of the local homeless population.  Over 20 volunteers conducted the surveys beginning at 7:00 am and canvassing the city throughout the day.  Approximately 50 individuals were surveyed with just 17 being counted as “sheltered” at the New Hope Center.   Participants were given 2-1-1 backpacks filled with items such as food, gloves, hats, blankets, and hygiene items.
