Homeless Count 'Makes a Big Difference'

Hundreds of County employees got up before the sun to participate in the annual Point-in-Time Count, an effort one employee says you won't ever regret.

"Yeah it gets you up early at 3:30 in the morning and gets you out of your comfort zone a little bit, but overall it's something that pays dividends," said HHSA employee Chris Strows, who was part of the count on Jan. 27. 

The Point-in-Time Count is part of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless’s WeALLCount campaign. The annual count gives a snapshot in time of the number of people experiencing homelessness throughout the San Diego region. The numbers help the region apply for federal funding and identify solutions on how to best serve this at-risk population.
