HOMELESS SURVEY FOLLOW UP
On Thursday night, January 26, 2017, Cook County participated in a statewide survey, called the Point in Time Survey, seeking to provide a “snapshot” of homelessness throughout Minnesota. A total of ten surveys were completed revealing the following number of homeless individuals in Cook County:
- Four families, each with one adult and one child
- One family with one adult and two children
- Thirteen individual adults (includes couples - living at five different locations)
Six people (including one child) were staying on private property that was not their own in either a barn, storage facility or fish house. The other 18 adults and children were all doubled-up with friends or family members (i.e., “couch surfing”).
Homelessness is a concern in Cook County, even in the coldest part of the winter. There are likely more people out there who we did not connect with.
The data we provide to the State can impact future funding to Cook County for housing issues. It is also about making sure the right amount of resources are provided to connect people to the services they need. It’s about meeting the needs of folks right in our community, if they would like assistance.
If you or anyone you know is homeless, please contact Anita Jeziah of AEOA (Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency) at 218-387-4547 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
