Redding Homeless Count Begins

Redding volunteers are taking surveys of local homeless as mandated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Posted: Jan 22, 2018 6:40 PM

Today begins that week long process which involves around 80 volunteers to distribute surveys. The count is already underway starting at the rescue mission tonight and tomorrow morning they will have a large event at veteran’s hall. This event will target unsheltered homeless to have their voices heard on this survey. It will also offer a place where various homeless outreach programs can reach out to the community. Coordinator Sandra Oswald hopes that this year they can reach more of the homeless population with previously unknown to them resources in the Reddding community. She even commented to me that often when speaking to individuals she tells them she hopes not to see them as a part of the survey next year. Volunteers will then continue the rest of the week reaching out to people in encampments and shelters to be able to have their voice heard and be counted.
This program is mandated by H.U.D. or the department of housing and urban development to make sure they have accurate numbers on homelessness. Every year in the last 10 days of January this count is required. Once results of the surveys are in they will share them with the government as well as the community.
