The Southern Nevada Homeless Census shows us how many people are on the streets and in shelters in our city. It gives us a snapshot of the challenges our community faces. The count is a requirement for federal grants that support housing, job training and other programs that can help move homeless individuals off the streets and back onto society. Last year, Southern Nevada received more than $13 million dollars from those grants that goes directly to those in need in our community.
