Collaborative Support Programs of New Jersey received funding and has agreed to house and support 27 chronically homeless people in Hudson County.
The information we get from the NJCounts is one of our tools we use to divide funding among areas of need for the homeless throughout the year.
We wanna make sure that we find everyone that we can that is homeless, because we want to try to show the need in the county.
Sharon McDonald recently wrote a blog post, “Homeless Youth Count (And Should Be Counted!)” which explains why homeless youth often go uncounted.
With about half of the counties holding NJCounts events on January 28, 2015, the press across the state continue to cover the event.
A person needs to work three full-time jobs if they have a minimum wage salary in order to afford a two-bedroom apartment in the state of NJ.
Half of the counties hosted their Point-in-Time and Project Homeless Connect on January 28, 2015. The others will do the count on February 4, 2015.
With the homeless count occurring in two days, the Suburban News reminds us that “Tweets about NJCounts can be found on Twitter at #NJCounts 2015.”
Due to the impending storm, many communities across the state will be postponing the 2015 Point in Time Count and Project Homeless Connect events.
The solution to homelessness is creating an adequate supply of permanent, affordable rental housing with available support services.
