Jefferson County is conducting the first ever Comprehensive Homeless Count Starting on August 19th
Efforts are underway to conduct the first-ever Comprehensive Homeless Count in Jefferson County through a coordinated effort of numerous agencies and cities.
The number of people facing homelessness in the county appears to be increasing, and the makeup of those who are experiencing it is also changing. Jeffco’s effort will expand the count beyond those living on the streets or in shelters to include individuals and families who are couch surfing or living in motels and other unstable, unsafe situations. This count will be different than one conducted for the federal government so that a full picture of homelessness in a suburban community where services are scattered and sometimes nonexistent can be created. This will help agencies and cities design services and policies to better address homelessness. Volunteers are needed for this effort in August.
