11-1-01  We could well have had fewer folks in our shelter in Spring, 2000; 
compared to 1990. I doubt very seriously that that's the case for Denver, 
however.

The Associated PressDENVER -- Advocates for the homeless in Colorado 
criticized a census survey of homelessness in America as inaccurate, saying 
the number of people in shelters in the state is far higher than reported.  
The Census Bureau report released Tuesday said there were 2,281 Coloradans 
living in shelters on one night, compared with 2,554 in 1990. Tracy D'Alanno, 
coordinator of the Metropolitan Denver Homeless Initiative, said her group 
counted more than 7,600 homeless people in the state.  "It gives us a slice 
of the pie but not the whole pie," said John Parvensky, director of the 
Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.  Detractors point to apparent 
discrepancies in the report.  For example, it listed only four Colorado 
cities with more than 100 shelter residents.Denver led the way with 1,144 
followed by Arvada with 211, Colorado Springs with 203 and Fort Collins with 
163.  Census officials say the survey was not meant to give an official tally 
of the homeless but to include as many people as possible in the census 
count. >>
