Point-in-Time Homeless Count & Survey: Calhoun County
An organization dedicated to the plight of the homeless in Anniston and Gadsden conducts its annual "Point In Time" homeless count and survey. Today, the Homeless Coalition of Northeast Alabama interviewed homeless individuals, homeless families, and agencies who provide services to the homeless in our area. The Right Place Executive Director Rita Flegel says the 24-hour survey period shows the number of individuals and families who are homeless on any given night. Flegel says over half of the people they talk to say it is the first time they have ever been homeless.
