FUNDING RELIES ON HOMELESS COUNT JANUARY 24TH!

1/18/2012

FUNDING RELIES ON HOMELESS COUNT JANUARY 24TH!

The Southern Illinois Continuum of Care is coordinating the annual 2012 Point-In-Time Count of homeless persons in its 27-county service area. The counties are divided into 5 main regions and each of them has a region representative. Keather Thompson, Associate Director of Wabash Area Development, is responsible for the counties of Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, Wayne, Edwards, White and Hamilton.  
 
The count will take place between 12 midnight and 11:59 p.m. local time on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. The count is very important because it helps determine the amount of federal funding available for homeless assistance in the state. That is why your support and the support of the community is so important to the count. 
 
Social service agencies, schools, hospitals, health departments, police and others will be mailed homeless surveys to complete for every homeless person they come in contact with on January 24th. If you would like to participate in the homeless count but haven’t been contacted please call Keather at (618) 963-2387 ext. 8008.
 
Your assistance with this important event is greatly appreciated. The Southern Illinois Continuum of Care strives to create and maintain a regional resource of services and housing that will help homeless individuals and families move from poverty and dependency, to jobs, self-sufficiency and permanent housing.
