A Census Was Taken Today: "We All Count": San Diego Task Force On the Homeless

Click here to see video on CBS News 8 - San Diego, CA

In order to qualify for funds to help the homeless, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires regional organizations, like the San Diego Regional Task Force on the Homeless, to conduct a survey in one day during the last 10 days of January of each year.  More details and requirement from HUD here and here.  In the future the results will be displayed as just numbers and statistics, not personal information on each homeless person, but still helpful to future historians and genealogists.  Everything is grist for the mill.

More in depth here from the San Diego Union-Tribune today.
