REPORT: Here’s how many homeless individuals are in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties

Results are in from the Coalition for the Homeless annual point-in-time homeless count and survey, and the city of Houston as well as Harris and Fort Bend counties have seen a 60 percent reduction in homelessness since 2011. More than 11,200 individuals—including veterans and chronically homeless people—in these regions have been permanently housed since 2012, the coalition found. The count and survey, which occurred on Jan. 23, gauges the success of local homeless support systems and is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for organizations like The Way Home Continuum of Care to receive federal funding.
