Homeless being counted in NKY

Posted: Updated:
COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

An eight-county, Northern Kentucky Point-In-Time count of homeless men, women, children  and families living in shelters, on the streets, and other places not meant for human habitation is being held on Wednesday.

The count is coordinated by the Northern Kentucky Area Development District, Brighton Center and  NorthKey Community Care. 

The count will also include precariously housed Northern Kentuckians, defined as people living in substandard housing conditions, doubled- or tripled-up with family or friends, or expecting eviction within fourteen days.

The count is taking place during a 24-hour period that ends at 11:59 on Wednesday night at various locations throughout Northern Kentucky.

The count helps determine how much funding will be available for homeless assistance in the state.  In addition, the count helps assess progress under Kentucky's Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness and provides important information for updating the plan.
