Volunteers needed to help count Kentucky’s homeless population

The Kentucky Housing Corp. is looking for volunteers to help count Kentucky’s homeless population.

The count will begin at sunrise on Jan. 27 and continue for 24 hours. The point-in-time count is known as the K-Count.

The count is used to monitor the scope of the homeless population in Kentucky. Housing Contract Administration Managing Director Davey King says an annual count allows the agency to better serve people in Kentucky.

The results of K-Count demonstrate the need for resources for housing and services for homeless people in each community and help determine how much federal funding will be awarded. It also helps assess progress in the state’s plan to end homelessness.

To volunteer, contact Shaye Rabold at (800) 633-8896 or (502) 564-7630, extension 415; TTY 711; or email srabold@kyhousing.org.
