On January 24, the City conducted its Annual Homeless Census in Plano. Volunteers identified 103 people without shelter and an additional 176 in transitional or emergency shelters. There was a total of 279 adults and children experiencing homelessness on a night when temperatures were below freezing.
As homelessness in Plano increases, more resources are available to connect homeless residents to services and housing. A Neighborhood Services Housing and Community Services Coordinator provides service coordination for homeless residents from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Harrington Library every Wednesday. Additionally, homeless residents can visit Homeless Case Manager Cal Martinez on Wednesdays through Fridays at the Assistance Center of Collin County. Learn more and join local efforts to end homelessness. A great way to join local efforts to end homelessness is to get involved with Collin County Homeless Coalition.
