Third-World Conditions in a Twenty-First Century America

Each year, KHC and our partners conduct the K-Count, an annual count of homeless adults and families across the state, to monitor the homeless situation in Kentucky. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires this count to demonstrate the need for resources for housing and services for homeless persons in each community. This year, I thought it would be beneficial to participate in the K-Count, to actually search for and talk with those who found themselves homeless. I would like to thank the staff of Welcome House of Northern Kentucky for allowing me to participate in their count, and the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky for allowing me to visit their facility. My experience left me heartbroken, hopeful, and determined.
