2015 One Night Count: 21% increase in homelessness
Greater Seattle Cares Board members participated in the one night count. The count has gone up from the year before by 21%. A lot of effort is made to make the count accurate.
We know that not every homeless person is counted. What is clear is that counting the same places in the same way every year can show us if there are more homeless people in our community than there was the year before.
