2017 Homeless Count
Planning has begun for the 2017 Homeless Count which will take place on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. This year’s count is being coordinated by the BC Non-Profit Housing Association. The local coordinator has already started working with service providers and City staff to begin the detailed mapping process. The upcoming count also includes a greater focus on rural areas and waterways. The count will capture the number of sheltered and unsheltered homeless. In 2014, the count began capturing the number of individuals on our streets or in our shelters who identify as veterans. The 2017 count will again provide information on this concerning trend.
