Those staying with family or friends, couch hopping or sleeping in vehicles, fish houses, campers — or anyone without a permanent place to stay — are asked to participate in the annual point-in-time count measuring homelessness in the community.

The event will be 1:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, at the Crow Wing County Land Services Building. Refreshments, hot beverages, food and vendors will be available. There will be a resource fair with community organizations that can help with any other needs attendees have.

“Everyone is welcome. We need to talk to you and make your voice Heard for the annual PIT count (Point In Time) count,” organizers stated in a news release. “Local, state, and federal funders need to know how many people don’t have permanent, stable housing in our community. Your voice matters and we need the funding to help you.”

To access this survey in greater Crow Wing County and connect to Coordinated Entry, call 866-560-7464.
