The survey is known as the Point In Time Count - which assesses the number of people in the community who are experiencing homelessness. It gives an understanding of who in the community needs assistance - everyone deserves safe and permanent housing.

This year, a total of 244 individuals experiencing homelessness, in shelters, transitional housing, and unsheltered, were surveyed in Muscogee and Russell County.

The total is up 2-percent from last year, many of which are most likely due to the pandemic.
