Every One Counts 
2012

(Springfield, Mo.) The "Every One Counts" sheltered and unsheltered homeless count will be conducted Thursday, January 31, 2013. Volunteers with the "Every One Counts" Unsheltered Homeless Count Campaign will be out in the community working to document the number of homeless persons in Christian, Greene, and Webster Counties.

In conjunction with this campaign, a centralized event for the unsheltered homeless will be held at The Salvation Army located at 1707 W Chestnut Expressway. Local churches will provide breakfast and lunch and event coordinators will distribute needed survival items.  Area agencies will also be on hand to provide direct services for housing, Veterans services, basic need items and more.

This campaign is part of the statewide count of the homeless population that occurs on the same day. The information collected will assist in the work of the Missouri Interagency Council to End Homelessness.  Providers and policymakers can also use the information to address the problem of homelessness on the local level.

The "Every One Counts" campaign is a collaborative effort of Community Partnership's Continuum of Care Committee, Council of Churches, The Salvation Army, Housing Authority of Springfield, Burrell Homeless Services, The Veterans Administration, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and many other local organizations.

Contact Michelle Garand for more information at 417-888-2020 or sign up to volunteer.
