CCU students help HUD count homeless population
2017 Jan 30
Nearly 50 Coastal Carolina University students have volunteered to help count the local homeless population for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) earlier in the spring semester 2017. The Point-In-Time (PIT) count helps to identify needs and allocate federal resources. The students, mostly from CCU's social inequality and race and ethnicity classes, visited 12 different shelters and places where the homeless gather, according to Stephanie Southworth, Ph.D.
