Laura Brott, collaborative coordinator for the St. Joseph County Human Services Commission, said any person or organization who took part in the Jan. 31 Point-In-Time homelessness count should submit their data as soon as possible.
Data-collection forms should be returned to Neighborhoods Inc. It is located at St. Joseph County Habitat for Humanity in Centreville.
Forms can be scanned and sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2024 Homeless Point-In-Time Count helps provide a clearer picture of homelessness in the county.
Spearheaded by the St. Joseph County Housing Task Force, the count includes the assistance of agencies and organizations that commonly interact with people who are homeless.
Homelessness numbers are used to determine housing and shelter dollars the county receives through state and federal sources.
