Volunteers Needed to Count Homeless in Anoka County | News
Volunteers are needed to help the Anoka County Continuum of Care count the number of homeless people living in the county.
The count is required to get funding for homeless programs. Volunteers will count the number of men, women, and kids living in shelters, on the street, and in other places not intended for housing. They will also count people living in substandard housing or with friends and family.
Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah said in a statement that the information will be used to build awareness, measure progress, and determine funding.
Last year more than 1,400 people in Anoka County were without a permanent home, according to the county.
The count takes place Thursday, Jan. 24, at various locations around the county.
For more information about volunteering, call 763-323-5707.
