NJ Counts is designed to understand the nature of New Jersey’s homeless population so that limited resources can most appropriately meet their needs and end homelessness.
Between January 27-28, 2015, volunteers will seek out homeless residents in shelters, woods, under bridges, in vacant buildings and other locations where they are forced to live because there is insufficient affordable or supportive housing and/or other suitable living arrangements for them. Every other year, including 2015, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandates that local communities conduct an un-sheltered count.
Please contact your local Point-In-Time Coordinator for more information about local planning efforts and trainings with Monarch staff.
Thank you for participating in NJ Counts 2015!
