The Point-in-Time Count for Homelessness in the Saskatchewan capital shows a great deal of people are without shelter.
A total of 286 people were counted in the Queen City in some form of homelessness, whether it be using public systems, public space, hidden homelessness or if the person didn’t know where they were staying.
“We only searched for three hours,” said Addison Docherty, the Director of the Point Time Count for Regina. “The point of the Point in Time Count is that it is a Point in Time reference to what’s happening in the city.”
Further details, such as situational characteristics, duration and causes of homelessness, are being released later this year.
