K Counts (End Homelessness in Kensington)

June 16, 2016

Kensington Homelessness Task Force facilitated Kensington Counts, an event in Kensington to count and survey individuals experiencing homelessness as well as connect them to vital resources and services.

A total of four drop-in locations opened for the event from 7pm to 11pm: Catholic Worker, Prevention Point, Mother of Mercy House, and St. Mark’s Church. In addition to these drop-in locations, five cars went out from 7pm to 11pm to conduct surveys and outreach with individuals unable or unwilling to go to drop-ins and Prevention Point’s medical van was stationed at an entrance to the tent city near the Conrail tracks.

All drop-ins and street teams provided food, toiletry kits, and socks. Additionally, basic medical care was available at three locations: Catholic Worker, Prevention Point, and the tent city tracks.
