How will does Colorado take care of its homeless? Tomorrow, a statewide count will work to find out.
The Colorado Interagency Council on Homelessness (ICH) will be working with various charities and governments to conduct a census, determining what homelessness really looks like in the state. According to the ICH, it will be the first homeless count of its kind in 17 years, and will not only look at the homeless population, but aim to figure out the main reasons people are living without a permanent residence .
Census regions have been divided into 9 districts, with a map available on the ICH website. Region 5 includes the bustling capitol of Denver, and Region 6 will be home to Colorado Springs, another fast growing city.
