Clay County will be part of the K-Count, a statewide count of homeless Kentuckians of all ages who are living in shelters, on the streets, and other places not meant for human habitation, is being coordinated by Kentucky Housing Corporation [KHC].
The county will begin at midnight on Wednesday January 28, 2015, until sunrise on Thursday, January 29, 2015, local time.
The K-Count is a critical source of data on the number and characteristics of people who are homeless in Kentucky. The count helps to obtain data on the estimated size and scope of the homeless population on any given day in the Commonwealth. This information collected includes demographics, household size, and disabilities to guide grant applicants, Consolidated Plan jurisdictions, and other local stakeholders in future
planning and policy making. The count allows KHC and partners to assess the needs of homeless Kentuckians and look for additional resources while measuring the progress and performance of current homeless programs and services.
The K—Count speciﬁcally collects information on unsheltered homeless to determine how many persons are sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation. This is the only time this is done throughout the year and a vast amount of information is collected on this population. This data has become increasingly important as a measure of our local and statewide progress related to preventing and ending homelessness.
To be paired with a local coordinator for the count, contact Kentucky Housing Corporation‘: Polly Lloyd toll—free in Kentucky at 800-633-8896 or 502-564-7630, extension 274; TTV 711; or email: ﬂoydgwkyhousingorg. You may also visit Kentucky Housing’s website, www,kyhousing.org.
