The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is coordinating a one-day count to identify the number of homeless people in the state.

The goal on Wednesday is to report the number of sheltered and unsheltered people in a 24-hour period.

Last January, New Hampshire reported 2,158 homeless individuals across the state. Of that number, 1,370 were sheltered, 262 were unsheltered, and 526 people were temporarily residing with family or friends. The total of 2,210 includes 393 families.

An accurate unduplicated count is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
