Volunteers count homeless in Metro Vancouver Volunteers count homeless in Metro Vancouver <div class="ExternalClassA568242456A64CA9B394D4108BF9B2BA"><p>More than 1,200 volunteers braved the snow and cold on March 7-8 to visit Metro Vancouver’s shelters, walk the streets and trawl the local waterways to get a better gauge of how many people are homeless across the region.</p><p>Preliminary results of the 2017 Homeless Count, slated to be released in mid-April, are expected to show higher-than-usual numbers of people living rough in Metro Vancouver, partly because the count was expanded to include homeless living in derelict vessels. It was also extended to three days in Surrey rather than one.</p><p>This was the first Homeless Count held on a night when an emergency weather response was issued, which may have resulting in more people moving into shelters or other temporary housing.</p><p>Region-wide Homeless Counts happen every three years and provide conservative, point-in-time snapshots of people who are homeless on a given day in Metro Vancouver. The Count involves a brief anonymous survey with people who appear to be homeless.</p><p>Research released by the Neglected Homeless Task Force in late February 2017 estimated more than 4,000 people are in immediate need of housing in Metro Vancouver and that five people become homeless in the region every week.</p><p>A final report on the number of homeless in Metro Vancouver will be released in the late summer.</p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/mu30-homelessness.jpg2017-03-30T07:00:00ZGP0|#4bfff573-f035-496d-a2db-b90f29d95f52;L0|#04bfff573-f035-496d-a2db-b90f29d95f52|Issue 30;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass296966BB7A04407D97C960FD1D8225E0"><p>​More than 1,200 volunteers braved the snow and cold on March 7-8 to visit Metro Vancouver's shelters, walk the streets and trawl the local waterways to get a better gauge of how many people are homeless across the region.
