Counting New York City's homeless population

Once a year, a number of selfless New Yorker’s spend a cold winter’s night canvasing city parks, subways and other public spaces to count the number of people living on New York City streets.

On this week’s Fordham Conversations we discuss the annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimation also known as the HOPE Count with the Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice Director, Sandra Lobo Jost. We also talk with Fordham Junior Jillian Abballe who’s served as both a HOPE Count’s volunteer and group leader.
