The United Way will begin the annual point-in-time homeless count today. Volunteers will hit the streets to interview those with no place to call home.

They’ll be asking them various questions such as where they slept last night, if they’re a veteran, and how many times they’ve stayed in a shelter. 

The county conducts the count because the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires communities that receive HUD funding or services to conduct the count. 

HUD then uses this data to understand the extent and nature of homelessness in Sedgwick County.

That allows them to make funding decisions.
