NEWPORT-A homeless persons advocacy group held a planning meeting on Monday, Dec. 3, for an upcoming count of the homeless population in Cocke County.

Amy Rimmer, of the Tennessee Valley Coalition to End Homelessness (TVCEH, or Coalition) said the results of the Jan. 24 count in Cocke County would be forwarded to the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for, in turn, possible funds to address the needs of homeless people in this area.

Rimmer said HUD is requiring the so-called "point in time" count, or snapshot of homeless people in Cocke County, on Jan. 24.

She said the TVCEH is the funding source locally for efforts to address the homeless population.
