Homeless Count to take place in Randolph

ELKINS — In collaboration with the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness, the North Central West virginia Community Action-Randolph County Homeless Shelter will be coordinating a street count of individuals experiencing homelessness beginning Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 4 p.m. until Thursday, Jan. 23. at 3:59 p.m.

During this 24-hour period, volunteers and the local service agency staff will collect information on the homeless population in Randolph County.

The Point-in-Time Count seeks to identify the number of homeless individuals and families in the county. The count measures the needs of those experiencing homelessness and provides direction for future development of services. Results from the count provide agencies in the area with vital information to be able to seek funding to provide services for individuals experiencing homelessness.

For more information on the Point-in-Time Count, call the Randolph County Homeless Shelter Manager at 304-636-5193 or cjividen@ncwvcaa.
