A count and survey of homeless people in the City of Nanaimo will help agencies better allocate funding and target efforts to end homelessness.

John Horn is the Social Planner at the City of Nanaimo and Co-Chair of the Nanaimo Homeless Coalition says a survey of the ages of the homeless didn’t result in any numbers too surprising….

Overall one hundred and 75 people have been living on the streets of Nanaimo for at least one year.
