County Quarterly Shelter Stats

These come from the County Office of Homeless Services.  They measure the number of people using the shelters in Cleveland.  There are duplicate individuals that are represented in each quarter.  In other words, you cannot add each quarter together to get a total for the year.  The County releases an unduplicated number at the end of each year.  There were reporting issues for the first quarter of 2015 with the families staying in transitional shelter.


Eliminating Veteran's Homelessness

This is a graph drawn up by the Sacramento Regional Coalition to End Homelessness in California that looked at the four cities in the United States to declare that they had "ended homelessness among veterans."  This data is collected from the Continuum of Care Complete Count report that each city submits in January and February of each year.
