Homeless count in Sooke higher than expected — 2 Comments

  1. Screened out means the person was not homeless. Declined means the person declined, not wanting to participate in the survey.

  2. Percentage of Homeless residing in Sooke is .21538462% based on 2016 Population Statistics. Of the homeless percentage how many are by choice? not everyone wishes to abide by societies idea of conformity. The question becomes if the community were to reopen a shelter would it be used? Conformity meaning time deadline to check in, no drugs or alcohol permitted. Some people just prefer to be permanent campers and a few may need legitimate help. Perhaps all is that is required is a place where one can shower without being judged. http://www.sanjoseinside.com/2016/01/28/sunnyvale-welcomes-mobile-showers-for-the-homeless/
