2015 Homeless Count Results

On January 22, more than 400 volunteers and 100 police officers—including 85 from FWPD!—went out into a cold night to count and survey residents of Tarrant and Parker Counties who were homeless.  As reported in the Star-Telegram, the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition released the results of the annual count on Wednesday.  Highlights include:

  • 59% decrease in chronic homelessness—the most expensive group to local government
  • There are only 11 chronically homeless Veterans to be housed
  • The overall number of 1,914 (adjusted to account for HUD-driven changes in bed inventory) is relatively flat compared to last year (+.03%) and remains less than 1% of the total population
  • Of the people counted as homeless in Tarrant and Parker Counties, 1,484 or 77.5% reside in Fort Worth
  • There were zero children under 18 sleeping outdoors
