Virginia Beach Asks for Help in Identifying Homeless Locations

creative commons

(AP) Virginia Beach officials are asking for the public's help in identifying locations around the city where homeless people live.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires cities that receive federal funding for homeless programs to conduct an unduplicated count of the homeless population known as the Point-in-Time Count.

The information submitted by the public will help guide teams of volunteers during the 2020 count.

Location points reported by the public should include the date observed and additional details that will help describe the situation. Officials are asking for visual observations only.
