United Way of Forsyth County (UWFC) staff and the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Continuum of Care team joined community volunteers to perform the point in time homeless count.

The event is part of a national initiative to measure and combat chronic homelessness. The goal is to give the local and federal government an idea of how many people are experiencing homelessness in the area, and to make sure there are enough appropriate services to help them.

Volunteers were organized into groups of four or five and in two shifts, 8pm-12am and 1am-4am. Organizers assembled bags of necessities that were handed out to homeless men and women . Samaritan Ministries hosted the event at their location.
