Nevada County Count: Various shelters counted their number of guests on the night of January 24th, 2018 – including Hospitality House, the Sierra Roots Warming Center, the Truckee Warming Center, and Booth Family Center. During the day on January 25th, 2018, Nevada County and multiple community organizations (including Hospitality House, Salvation Army, Sierra Roots, SPIRIT Peer Empowerment Center, Community Beyond Violence, and Pets In Need) hosted a Homeless Connect Event at the Salvation Army in Grass Valley, with a wide variety of services including a warm meal.
The 2018 Point In Time results demonstrated a 27% decrease as compared to 2017. Various factors can affect these results since they are performed on a single night - such as weather (this year the count was performed on a cold and snowy day), location of the event, etc. This year’s count results are relatively in line with previous years’ count results.
