Street Count

What can you do to help end homelessness in your city? If you have a heart, this question has probably posed itself before. This Thursday, turn that thought into action by helping the Coalition for the Homeless in their annual street count. The effort, conducted each January, aims to get an accurate number of people sleeping outdoors (those living in the harshest of elements without option). More volunteers means more ground covered and a more accurate count for the Coalition to measure progress and set new goals. The count commences and ends at the Wayside Christian Mission from 4-6 a.m.; a warm breakfast included. Interested participants apply at louhomeless.org, then attend the mandatory meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 6-7 p.m.
