CONCORD (AP) - The Bureau of Homeless and Housing Services in New Hampshire's Health Department is holding a count to identify the number of homeless people within a 24-hour period.
The count on Wednesday is a combined effort between three local groups that work with the homeless in Nashua, Manchester and elsewhere and coordinate with the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness.
The count, a snapshot of how many people are experiencing homelessness on a given day in the state, is based on information reported from city and town welfare offices, homeless shelters, hospitals, hotels, police departments, faith-based organizations, outreach workers, and others.
In January 2014, New Hampshire reported 2,210 homeless people in its one-day count. Over 1,200 of them were in shelters.
