Thank you to our Point In Time Count Volunteers!
Every year, Home For Good conducts a Point In Time Count. It shows us that the number of individuals becoming homeless is declining.
The data collected reveals in 2016, we experienced our highest count of individuals facing homelessness. There were 282 people considered homeless. In 2019, the average was down to 110 people. And as of March 6, 2020, there are 94 people experiencing homelessness. Five years ago, we wanted to tackle Veteran homelessness. Today, there are 7 Veterans experiencing homelessness; all of whom have been offered services.
Thank you to our Community Investment Volunteers!
Community Investment Volunteers work to evaluate and determine funding of United Way resources. Volunteers assess organizations based on need, stewardship, and results!
