Volunteers Conduct Census Of Homeless in Ventura County

Posted on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 12:07am

It was a census day of sorts in Ventura County.

Some 300 volunteers hit the streets of the county yesterday, to try to count the county’s homeless.

The statistics are important because the federal government uses the number to determine the county’s eligibility for funding to help deal with the problem.

Last year’s survey counted more than 1900 homeless in the county, with the greatest concentration, more than 700 people, found in the Ventura area.
