                  Metro homeless count shows slight increase
                =20
                  By Amanda N. Maynord,  amaynord@nashvillecitypaper.com =

                  Nashville currently has 2,237 persons living either in =
shelters or outdoors, according to the Metro Department of Housing =
Agency.

                  The total is a slight increase from the 2,176 count =
last year.

                  The count took place in the early morning hours Jan. =
29 and the number will be used to combat chronic homelessness in =
Nashville, according to MDHA.

                  "This provides us with a point-in-time count of =
homeless people in Nashville," said Suzie Tolmie, MDHA homeless =
coordinator, in a press release.

                  Homeless advocates have both encouraged the count and =
commented that the count has not been used advantageously in the past.

                  The number will be used to build public awareness, aid =
in planning efforts and to seek funds to assist the homeless, according =
to Tolmie.
