Preliminary numbers will be released from Red Deer’s first Point in Time Homeless Count In two weeks.
The count was held on Tuesday evening.
The final report will be out in mid-December.
A total of 98 volunteers and specialized teams participated in the count which will provide a snapshot of the city’s homelessness for EveryOne’s Home: Red Deer’s 5 Year Plan Towards Ending Homelessness.
The plan promotes strategies to end homelessness and create resources for those at risk.
“(The count) is definitely going to advise us in moving forward in what we’re truly dealing with in our community and how we can provide better supports and services,” said Rebekah McDermott, co-ordinator with EveryOne’s Home.
