McClaren said the statewide count in Wyoming previous year found 879 homeless people in Wyoming. The 2017 homeless census counted 6,490 homeless people in Clark County.

At 3:30 a.m. Thursday, more than 80 volunteers bundled up and ventured out into the dark places of Oklahoma City that most citizens never see.

Volunteers across the Santa Clarita Valley came together to count the number of homeless people spread out across the city as part of an annual count throughout Los Angeles County.

"For the unsheltered, we hit the streets looking in abandoned buildings and under bridges".

"The good news is our community is getting better at housing people", said Jerod Shadid, an associate planner in the City Planning Department's community development division. "Some of the people we found last night probably were in that situation and didn't know resources were available to them".

To volunteer as an organization or individual to assist in conducting the count within the Big Sandy region, or to provide information about homeless individuals, please contact Jacqueline Long at 859-740-2086.
