IMPERIAL COUNTY, Calif. – Volunteers throughout the Imperial Valley will be searching parks, abandoned buildings, under bridges and anywhere people without homes reside. All in an effort to collect information for the Imperial County homelessness.
It’s part of a nationwide effort by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, to assist agencies with money for homelessness programs.
Ken Wyutens, Executive Director at United Way of Imperial County, says last year they counted close to 500 homeless people throughout the county, the majority of them in the Niland area.
Agencies like local police departments, Neighborhood House in Calexico and Catholic Charities are just a few of the many volunteers.
