Homeward released initial findings from its 14th Winter Point-in-Time Count. The twice-yearly census provides a snapshot of the number of people experiencing homelessness on a single day. Preliminary results reveal 1,040 people in the region experiencing homelessness on January 26, 2012. This number reflects a 5.6% decrease in the number of people overall experiencing homelessness, with a 10.9% decrease in the number of people living on the streets in our region, from January 2011 to January 2012.
