Jan 15, 2016

It's like the U.S. Census, just a lot shorter and more intense.  And more difficult: trying to count people with no fixed address.

But point-in-time (PIT) homeless counts are common across the country... a one-day reading of the numbers of people living on the streets and in the woods and homeless camps. 

The Community Alliance of Lane County, CALC, is coordinating the count in Lane County on January 27th, with training this week (Jan. 19). 

CALC Program Director Michael Carrigan joins us with details.
