Each year for the last several years in Billings there has been a homelessness survey taken around town. It is an important exercise so Billings has an accurate count of the homeless families living in Billings.

United Way of Yellowstone County conducts the study in the “Point in Time” survey.  Looking back to the survey of a year ago, there were approximately 800 people identified as homeless in Billings.  This was based on the returned surveys.

Some may think that homelessness is just the people that are living outside.  There are many different phases of being homeless.  Yes, some that are counted live outside, others that are homeless stay with friends and move on from there.

The surveys were handed out to about 2,700 people in Yellowstone and  Big Horn counties.  United Way of Yellowstone County expects about half to be returned for the final count.
