Home. The vast majority of us take having a roof
over our heads for granted. But for hundreds of people in our four-county
area, basic housing doesn't exist.
Or they live in abandoned buildings or trailers without even the most
basic of services such as water, sanitation, heat, or electricity.
Or they take shelter with relatives in living quarters that are
overcrowded and substandard.
The causes are complex: unemployment, lack of education, poverty, and
others. Read our Did You Know? page for more information on the scope of
the problem in our area. It's real. And it's growing.
We have formed this consortium to make a difference, one person at a time.

2013 POINT-IN-TIME COUNT
We are coordin-ating a
four-county effort to bring state and federal resources into our
communities to address issues of homelessness and housing, by con-ducting a "Point in Time" (PIT)
count of homeless persons in our communities. This count will take
place from Monday, January 21st through Friday, January 25th.
If you are a community partner, we are asking for your assistance in
completing this PIT count, since many of these individuals may utilize
your services, or may be known to you.
