The Richland County Coalition on Housing and Homelessness held its annual Point in Time Count of the homeless on Tuesday.

Groups of volunteers search area's all over the county for 24 hrs in an effort to find residents in need of shelter. The homeless are then provided with packets of information outlining ways in which they can improve their current situation.

Harmony House Director Vicki Kane says three people were found living on the streets at this time last year and a total of 85 residents were found to be homeless in the county.

Volunteer Kurt Harsteine says given the frigid conditions that he didn't expect to find anyone during Tuesday's search and that he was more concerned making sure people weren't out in the cold weather.

For more information you can contact Alex Norris at 419-526-4005.
