DANBURY — Volunteers are needed to conduct an annual census of homeless individuals living in Danbury and across the state.

The Connecticut Coaltion to End Homelessness will conduct its point-in-time count on the evening of Jan. 21 into the morning of Jan. 22. A youth outreach and count will be held Jan. 22 through Jan. 28.

The census logs the number of homeless individuals in a community on a single night, in addition to other information.

Last January, the coalition counted 114 individuals in Danbury without a home. Seventy-five of them were single adults, while the others were children or adults in families. About 30 were unsheltered, the report found.

“As CCEH and our partners across Connecticut work to bring an end to homelessness for all individuals, families, and youth in our state, we rely heavily on these counts to help us measure whether and how well our strategies are working,” said Richard Cho, CEO of the coalition. “This year, we will need more volunteers than ever to ensure an accurate count, and we hope that congregations, businesses, college students, municipalities, and any individual interested in engaging in efforts to end homelessness will join us for this important effort.”
