Homeless population under-counted, social service experts believe
Hubbard County has an estimated 100 homeless people in its midst, including one person spending nights in the stairwell of a downtown Park Rapids store. And those numbers are believed to under-represent the extent of the homeless population.
The estimations were the result of a 24-hour "point in time" survey conducted Jan. 28 over 12 northwestern counties of the state. The entire count for the region was 200-250 homeless, including 81 children.
