Point-in-Time homeless count set for Jan. 22
The Western Virginia Continuum of Care (CoC) will conduct its annual Point-in-Time homeless count for Winchester and Frederick County on Jan. 22.

The count does not include people living in motels or staying with friends.
The area CoC covers Frederick, Clarke, Page, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Warren counties, the towns within those counties, and the cities of Winchester and Harrisonburg.
