August 5, 2009
Elaine de Coligny, Executive Director of EveryOneHome shares the results of the 2009 Homeless Count for Alameda County with Joanne Greene. 200 volunteers surveyed over 1,200 individuals in January to update local data on how many people and the characteristics of those who are homeless and at-risk of homelessness. Their findings also examine housing situations ranging from on the streets, in shelters, at imminent risk of eviction, staying with friends or relatives on a temporary basis, and in permanent housing using local safety net services.
