One Night Homeless Count Today

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 7:10 PM

The Homeless Leadership Coalition's One Night Homeless Count started today at 10 a.m. The count, which began in 2006, aims to count each homeless person in Central Oregon, from those at homeless camps to those staying temporarily in motels.

We're spending the day at the count, at locations including the Family Kitchen, the Bethlehem Inn, and the United Methodist Church downtown on Bond Street. Homeless can come to each of these locations to pick up blankets, water bottles, pet food, propane, food, and goodie bags like this:
