Arkansas homeless population on the decline

07-Dec-2015

In November of 2015, HUD released the latest homeless numbers suggesting the homeless population in Arkansan is declining.  According to KATV in Little Rock, "The 2015 Point-In-Time count compared to the count in 2013 showed a 12% decline for the whole state and deeper decline for central Arkansas - shedding 22% of the area's homeless population with 830 homeless people counted across the four county survey area."

This is encouraging news to organizations like Vine & Village who serve the homeless and impoverished in our community.
