KY Homeless Count
By Chris Taylor
Frankfort, KY – Volunteers and local officials will be out for 24 hours starting at midnight to count the number of people in Kentucky who are homeless or living in precarious conditions.
The Kentucky Housing Corp. is coordinating the count, and the agency says it helps determine how much funding will be available for homeless assistance. The count is also meant to help determine progress under Kentucky's 10-year plan to end homelessness.
Workers will be counting Kentuckians living in shelters, on the streets or in places not meant for habitation, as well as people living in substandard housing or with family and friends or expecting eviction within a week.
