Marquette Area 2018 Homeless "Point In Time" Count at the Janzen House

Northern Michigan University BSW Interns Melissa Rife and Lauren Munson coordinated the 2018 Homeless Point in Time count at the Janzen House this week with the assistance of over 30 volunteers from the Marquette area.  Starting a midnight on Jan 31st through midnight February 1st, teams of trained counters were dispatched every 2 hours to identify the number of individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness in our communities. Melissa and Lauren actually ran this for 24 straight hours.   We would like to acknowledge their fine performance this year, and thank all of volunteers who braved the elements over the course of the night and day to acquire this information.
