The annual Point in Time count is held each year across the United States, including in southwest Missouri.  The Community Partnership of the Ozarks is the coordinator of the local effort, which included an event at the Shrine Mosque.

"We have different service agencies that are here.  We have a hot breakfast and warm lunch to bring folks in to do a survey kind of about their housing history," said event co-planner, Amanda Stadler, with Community Partnership of the Ozarks.

Volunteers will fan out across Greene, Christian and Webster Counties today to count the homeless.  The Every One Counts campaign is being headed up by the Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness.

According to CPO, it’s held annually to meet critical mandates by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides more than $1 million in funding and support for homeless services in the Ozarks.

Over 600 homeless and at-risk individuals were given access to basic needs through a number of services Wednesday.  

The ninth annual HOPE Connection and Veterans Stand Down event was held in the Springfield Expo Center. It’s an initiative of Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness’ month-long “Every Action Counts Campaign.”

Amanda Stadler, Community Partnership’s neighborhood and housing stabilization specialist, said she’s participated in the event for five years, chairing the planning committee the past two.

Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness has launched a new campaign to further its mission.

The “Every Action Counts: A Homeless Awareness Campaign,” announced Wednesday, kicks off a series of events this month and serves as a response to OAEH’s January homeless count.

Amanda Stadler, the organization’s neighborhood and housing stabilization specialist, shared the results of that count during a press conference at the Springfield Art Museum.
