Governor Matt Mead announces the state’s next Homeless Point-in-Time Count is set for Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Volunteers around the state work on the Homeless Count. Some manage the count, and others meet directly with people who are homeless. The information is used to determine funding for projects that assist the homeless. Volunteers are needed in some parts of Wyoming.

Governor Mead will proclaim January 22nd as Homeless Count Day. The proclamation signing will take place in the Capitol Rotunda in Cheyenne on Tuesday, January 21st, at 10:00 a.m. In July of 2013 Governor Mead appointed the state’s first homeless coordinator. Brenda Lyttle is working on a ten-year plan to address homelessness in Wyoming and to better coordinate services.

“In a large, rural state like Wyoming there are unique challenges for the homeless,” Brenda Lyttle, Senior Administrator for the Department of Family Services stated. “Governor Mead’s proclamation declaring January 22nd as the Homeless Count Day is a good step to raise awareness and make Wyoming’s count more effective.”
