The Homeless Count

Tonight is the homeless count at the agency I volunteer at. Every year the city has volunteers go around and count all the homeless they see. They count the people under bridges, in doorways, alleys or but not the people squatting in condemned buildings. So our tiny little agency has one slumber party for all those kids and adults squatting to come get food and sleep where it’s warm. As of right now it’s twelve thirty four at night and I roughly count around 20 people that are sprawled out. The total count is currently in the lower seventies. We need these events to get demographic information to give to the United Way or the city so we can get funding. It’s fun to see some faces I usually only see on the street and hear their story.
