ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany is once again trying to get an accurate count of the homeless population.

The Coalition to End Homelessness Volunteers will spread out over a 14 county area over the next week to ask those participating in the survey where they slept Sunday night.

The questioning will happen at shelters, rescue missions, and some government aid offices.

A more accurate count could help the region secure state and federal assistance for those in need.
