Annual homeless count provides more than numbers

Local News

Valeo Behavioral Healthcare in Topeka was out helping people who are homeless. The city of Topeka calls it the “point in time count,” which will be published later this year and presented to local governing bodies.

Valeo is just one of the groups helping survey the homeless community in Topeka. Valeo’s “hope” team helped one man by putting him in a motel room during the snow.

They also delivered him socks to help stay warm. Along with Valeo the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Offfice, Topeka Police Deparment and Topeka Rescue Mission are part of the effort.
