The Heath and Human Services Agency (HHSA) has been working collaboratively with community partners for the past three years to create a solution to the local growing homeless problem.
In this time period, the county has been working with the regional Continuum of Care by attending their organizational meetings and participating in their various committees. In 2013, the homeless problem was counted as 277 chronically homeless individuals which increased to 651 persons in the year 2015 count which was conducted in accordance with HUD mandated procedures. There was a minor decrease of 19 percent (124 chronic homeless) in the 2017 Homeless Census, with a total count of 527.
