The Homeward Bound Homeless Coalition is conducting a count of sheltered and unsheltererd homeless persons today.
Later this afternoon, members will head to Faith Mission and Faith Refuge Homeless Shelters, as well as other areas frequented by the homeless, to get an accurate count of how many are in Wichita Falls and the surrounding area.
In the past this count was conducted every other year. But this year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced it plans to make it an annual event.
