The total homeless counted in all of Kentucky in 2017 was just over 4,000 people, about 1,000 of whom were in the Louisville area.

"I hear a lot of people that say they got a lot out of it just being able to go out in the streets and see the conditions that some people live in, and it kind of inspires them to want to do more as volunteers in the community", she states.

Last year, volunteers counted over 300 homeless people in Rapid City.

"This will help us help you", Bowes said they tell clients. "Any where we might find someone", she said.

"We're really taking a hard look at the 18 to 24 demographic", Querry said.

An unsheltered person or family is residing in a place not meant for human habitation, such as cars, sidewalks, abandoned buildings, streets, parks, overpasses/bridges, doorways and so on. "If we have a medical emergency, if someone needs a resource, we're going out there prepared". But they aren't alone in the problem. Clients must agree to allow advocates to continue trying to offer them supportive services, but they don't necessarily have to accept services, Gillespie said. She said the bags include basic necessities such as hygiene products, plastic baggies, flashlights, socks and mittens.

Blankets, sleeping bags and mats, backpacks full of personal care items, along with new coats, hats and gloves were placed into the hands of several people who probably spent the previous night sleeping outdoors. Lextran will offer the homeless free rides to shelters during that period. In Atlantic County in 2017, there were 422 people identified as having experienced homelessness, according to the report. In 2016, there were only 23 homeless, with all being considered sheltered.

Throughout the winter, the coalition assist people through the Code Blue Chautauqua County initiative.

In addition, the following Chautauqua County library warming centers are open including: Hazeltine Public Library, 891 Busti-Sugar Grove Road; James Prendergast Library, 509 Cherry St.; Sinclairville Free Library, 15 Main St.; Ellington-Farman Free Library, 760 Thornton Road; and Patterson Library, 40 S. Portage Road.

That funding comes through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1986, which provides federal money for shelter programs.
