WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Individuals and families who are homeless in the Wichita area can receive services and be counted at a special event Wednesday.
The United Way of the Plains is coordinating the so-called Point-In-Time Homeless Count and Services Event. It takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Century II exhibition hall in Wichita.
Volunteers from a coalition of community groups will provide dental screenings, flu shots, gloves and socks and information about housing and benefits.
The event will also help service agencies obtain accurate data on the scope of homelessness in the Wichita area.
