Census Bureau includes Kitsap's homeless in its count
From the North Kitsap Herald:
SILVERDALE — U.S. Census Bureau workers scoured hidden corners of Kitsap County before dawn Wednesday, counting people who have no front door to knock on.
The three-day homeless count began Monday and included surveys of shelters and soup kitchens. Unlike local homeless counts, the Census Bureau also aimed to count homeless people where they were sleeping. Census workers combed parking lots, bridges and woodlands — anywhere they believed the homeless might be staying at night.
