The Homeless Population
The National Coalition on Homelessness (NCH) suggests that in order to find the number of homeless persons by county or city level, it is better to contact the individual local homeless coalitions. The NCH provides the directory for contacting the local homeless coalitions at web site http://www.nationalhomeless.org/state/
For selected cities, the Conference of Mayors Report on Hunger and Homelessness releases status report every year. Please see web site at http://www.usmayors.org/
