Volunteers count San Diego’s homeless
SAN DIEGO – The annual “We All Count” survey to count San Diego’s homeless population was underway Friday.
More than a thousand volunteers around the county were out around 4:00 a.m. surveyed the area’s homeless who are on the streets, in shelters, or doubling up with families.
The count allows San Diego to better understand the issues homeless face and plan potential solutions to homelessness. It also enables the community to qualify for funding to help address the issue.
San Diego’s 2014 census found around 8,500 individuals, families, and unaccompanied children experience homelessness every year in San Diego County.
