Homeless Point-in-time Count Continues Outreach into the Morning

More Video...

A homeless point-in-time count took place overnight in Wausau and also statewide.

Community volunteers gathered in teams to search the local community in Wausau for anyone experiencing homelessness. The point-in-time count is a statistically reliable way to track those experiencing homelessness in a one-night designated period.

The count includes not only those that may be on the streets, but also those who are in transitional housing, safe havens and numerous kinds of shelters.

First United Methodist Church in Wausau was the designated gathering spot for once the morning came. At 7:00 a.m. a breakfast was to be provided as well as a resource fair for those interested in seeking help.

The point-in-time count is said to happen twice every year.
