Counting Gainesville's Homeless Population
Since the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry began surveying the area's homeless population in 2005, the number has steadily increased.
Fifty surveyors from the ACCHH spent the day getting a better grasp of how many homeless people there are in our community.
The survey is required each year by the federal government and helps the county secure grant money.
Once the data is collected, the demographic information is sent to Washington D.C.
The coalition asks additional questions to determine the greatest need for homeless people.
