Homeless census underway in Rock County
The number of people living on the street in Rock County may be growing.
Marc Perry with Community Action says an overnight homeless censes taken this week found 22 people living on the streets in Janesville and Beloit, compared to 17 during the single night count last summer. When shelter numbers, displaced school age children, and other charitable programs are added in, Perry expects Rock County's homeless total to be well over 300.
The figures are used to help determine funding for programs.
