CitySquare sent a team to work on the project. About 20 of us took our assignment to survey/interview anyone we found on Louise Street or its environs. We know this part of town, the Opportunity Center sits right in the middle of the neighborhood.
The night was bitter cold and wet. This will likely be good for the final tally, as most folks found places inside to spend the night. Local shelters open their doors wider, and some find places to spend the night with friends. Since the census documents the presence of all in shelters, it drives the count up, though we have no way to count folks who find places inside with friends or family.
