Homeless count begins at end of January

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority and the Guam Homeless Coalition will be conducting a count of the community's homeless families and individuals this month.  HUD mandates that jurisdictions receiving federal funds to provide supportive services to the homeless must conduct a "point in time" homeless count.

The results are then submitted to the feds as part of a grant application.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer to help with the count can call 477-7671. Guam's homeless count in 2010 totaled at just over 1,400 people.
