‘One Night Count’ early January 25th to include White Center

The area’s annual One Night Count of unsheltered homeless people will again include White Center, according to the announcement we received today:

Countywide One Night Count of unsheltered homeless people next week

Nearly 1,000 volunteers across King County will participate in next week’s One Night Count of unsheltered homeless people. The annual One Night Count, scheduled for the pre-dawn hours of Friday, January 25, will attempt to make a specific tally of unsheltered people throughout King County. The effort is organized by the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness (SKCCH) with support from the Committee to End Homelessness in King County (CEH) and dozens of local and state nonprofit and government partners.

Teams of volunteers will return to historical and new count areas in Auburn, Bellevue, Bothell, Federal Way, Kent, Kenmore, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, Seattle, Shoreline, White Center and Woodinville. The 2013 One Night Count will also collect information from select hospitals about emergency room usage, and from Metro night owl buses operating throughout the county.

That’s from a media alert which says the count will happen during a period of approximately three hours – 2 am to 5 am, Friday morning 1/25.
