Volunteers Conduct Atlanta/Fulton/DeKalb Homeless Census

ATLANTA - Hundreds of volunteers, on a cold, rainy night, canvassed the streets of DeKalb and Fulton counties and the city of Atlanta in an effort to count the homeless population of the area.

The homeless census, which is conducted every two years, is sponsored by Metro Atlanta Tri-Jurisdictional Collaborative on Homelessness (Tri-J), a partnership of government representatives and service providers in Atlanta, Fulton County and DeKalb County. The project is managed by Pathways Community Network, and our research team will author a study based on this count and a large scale survey conducted afterwards.
