During the month of February, Clark County Community Services helped 1,028 families. Of those families, 27 were new clients.
Community Services also provided food for 917 families, clothing for 41 families, housing for eight families, transient gasoline for four families, transient lodging for four families, family self-sufficiency for 18 families and safe havens for 18 families.
Eleven families received help with utilities.
Tenant-based rental assistance was provided for seven families.
There were eight food pantry donations, 789 thrift store donations and 34 monetary donations.
February was the month to complete the point in time homeless count for Clark County. The count is mandated by HUD and the data gained is used to provide information to HUD and Congress so that adequate funding is available to provide services to the homeless population.
Community Services partnered with People Helping People to ensure that the entire county was covered and that all sites were canvassed. More than 20 volunteers assisted in counting those who do not have adequate housing.
