Homeless count results on the way
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano
Though the Austin Monitor reported last month that this year’s homeless count found about 100 more people than last year, the official results of the annual count will be unveiled today. Mayor Steve Adler, Council members Kathie Tovo, Greg Casar and Paige Ellis, and ECHO Executive Director (and Travis County commissioner candidate) Ann Howard will join stakeholders working to end homelessness to answer questions about the 2019 count this morning at City Hall. According to a press release, since the January 26 count, “ECHO has tabulated the results including the number of individuals and families sleeping outside and in shelter. This year, specific attention will be given to the number of youth and young adults identified, as Austin was one of 10 communities chosen by HUD in 2017 to implement a Youth Homelessness Demonstration Grant.”
