How many people are homeless in Hunterdon? Members of the county Comprehensive Emergency Assistance System Committee hope to find out tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 28 during the annual one-day, “point in time” homelessness survey.

The homeless must go to Flemington or Lambertville to participate. Project Homelessness Connect is designed to provide hospitality to homeless people and to link them with social service agencies and assistance. It’s part of a state-wide effort to find out who is in need of housing and other services by attempting to count individuals and families here who are without a permanent residence.

HUNTERDON COUNTY —Community members will survey individuals and families without a permanent residence Wednesday in two county locations.

The Hunterdon County Department of Human Services and Hunterdon County Comprehensive Emergency Assistance System Committee will take part in Project Homeless Connect “Point in Time Homelessness Survey” from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Interfaith Hospitality Network at Flemington Presbyterian Church, 10 E. Main St., Flemington and at Fisherman’s Mark, 50 York St., Lambertville.

The survey is an anonymous tool that looks at the state of homelessness at a particular point in time as a snapshot of the homeless community. The survey consists of brief questions regarding issues such as family composition, services needed or currently being received and length of time without a permanent address.
