The 2019 Homeless Count

Every year on the presumably coldest night of January throughout city of Chicago a Point In time Homeless count is taking place. Polish American Association as one of the lead agencies participated in the annual count to obtain a “snapshot of Chicago homeless population which serves as basis for Federal funding for service and resource planning and to raise public awareness about homeless.. On January 24. 2019 between 9pm and 3am, 5 teams of 16 volunteers, amongst them our Alderman John Arena who joined us second time in row, ventured out in the bitter cold condition in search of homeless out on the streets. As of 3:05 AM total count of homeless individuals in our designated canvassing are was 15 .

We would like to thank all volunteers, All Chicago Team and Alderman Arena for their continuous participation and commitment in making this event possible.
