County looking for help in homeless count

Palm Beach County and other groups are looking for volunteers to help them conduct a count of the county’s homeless population.

The point-in-time count, to be conducted during a 24-hour period starting at noon Thursday, is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. State and federal money is tied to the count, which will also be used to direct assistance to those in need.

Those interested in helping with the count are encouraged to call 561-355-4766 or visit http://discover.pbcgov.org/communityservices/humanservices/Pages/HHA.aspx.
