HUD: Homelessness declines in Wisconsin in 2017

HUD: Homelessness declines in Wisconsin in 2017

Meanwhile, local communities in Wisconsin report the overall number of persons experiencing long-term chronic homelessness has increased 19.6 percent (71) and veterans experiencing homelessness decreased by almost 21 percent from 2016 and decreased by 46 percent since 2010. OR saw a 5 percent increase this year, while in Washington the homeless population rose to 21,112 - an increase of 1 percent over the previous year. The count in January found more than 11,643 people in the Seattle area who are homeless, a 47 percent increase from 2007.

The report comes as the homelessness population is on the rise on the West Coast.

However, the city and county of Los Angeles saw a almost 26 percent increase in overall homelessness since 2016, primarily among people found in unsheltered locations.

HUD said 193,000 people nationwide had no nightly shelter and were staying in cars, tents and the streets.

553,742 people were homeless representing an overall.7 percent increase from 2016 and a 13.1 percent decrease since 2010. It does not take into account families and individuals who might experience homelessness at other times during the year.

Allen said the homeless have come into his bar to bathe in the restroom wash basins, and employees have developed a strategy for stopping people from coming in to panhandle among customers. He is surrounded by thriving business and entertainment districts, and new apartments that are attracting scores of young people to the heart of the nation's second most populous city.

Helping those like Neubauer is a top policy priority and political issue in Los Angeles.

"We are turning families away", he said. New York City reported a 4.1 increase, mostly among families in emergency shelters and transitional housing, HUD officials said.

"Los Angeles' homelessness crisis was not created in a vacuum, and it can not be solved by L.A. alone", Garcetti said in a statement.

In the Pacific Northwest, the report shows the homeless crisis is affecting cities and towns disproportionately.

In contrast, the HUD report revealed a long-running decline in homelessness continuing in most other regions.

That said, the results of our count did grow at a higher rate than the rest of the United States, with the unsheltered count going up 21 percent and overall count of people experiencing homelessness growing by around 8.5 percent.

Places where the numbers went down included Atlanta, Philadelphia, Miami, the Denver area and Hawaii, which declared a statewide homelessness emergency in 2015. This year, HUD and local communities launched a more intense effort to more accurately account for this important, hard to count population.

But he added the rescue mission has put itself in the position to help more people. Those who work regularly with the homeless say it is certainly an undercount, although many advocates and officials believe it correctly identifies trend lines.
