The number of homeless citizens in Northumberland County has gone down, according to a recent survey.
Last week, 60 trained volunteers connected with individuals and families throughout Northumberland who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
They surveyed 53 individuals and 10 families who identified as homeless.
That’s down from the 58 individuals and 17 families who experienced homelessness in the last Registry Week in November 2016.
Officials will be reconnecting with every person identified as homeless within the next three to six months, to link them with appropriate services and supports.
