Counting the Homeless

Last year, the official count of unsheltered homeless in all of Wahiawa and the North Shore was 198, and only 49 homeless were counted between Kahuku and Kaneohe. Surely, many more people in our region are homeless. This lack of accurate counting adversely impacts funding for support services. The Point in Time Count is an annual census of homeless, both sheltered and unsheltered, used by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to determine federal funding for homeless initiatives in each community. In other words, it is important to make sure we go out and properly count. Volunteer training sessions are ongoing around Oahu in advance of the January 23-26, 2017 count
