FEATURE
One night every January the state dispatches groups to homeless shelters, abandoned buildings and tent cities across Indiana. The goal is to make an estimate of the state’s homeless population. The effort is known as a point-in-time homeless count, which is required by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD (“hud). This year’s study found slightly fewer homeless Hoosiers than years past. Assistant News Director Joe Crawford spoke with a state official about what that means and what we can learn from a study conducted on a single winter night. We bring you that interview for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
