The annual Point-in-Time Count of New Jersey’s homeless population got underway locally this week with community involvement and outreach programs curtailed due to the impacts of COVID-19.
…Monmouth County Commissioner Susan Kiley said the county is attempting to balance the mandate to carry out the homeless census during the pandemic to assess needs and qualify for federal funds, while not putting participants at risk… According to Kiley, the county created the Monmouth ACTS website, MonmouthACTS.org, to help residents connect to services and to assist local communities.
“Basically, it’s a partnership between county government and local entities that deliver services to people. We have a homeless hub and meet regularly,” she said.
