Initiative to end chronic homelessness in Utah successful

Chronic homelessness in Utah has fallen 69 percent since 2006. Since 2010, the number of people considered "chronic homeless" — people who have experienced homelessness once within the past year or have had three episodes of homelessness in four years — has dropped 26 percent, according to the 2011 Comprehensive Report on Homelessness released Wednesday. According to the annual Point in Time Count conducted Jan. 26, 2011, there are an estimated 3,114 homeless people in Utah. Estimates suggest that 14,351 people will experience homelessness in Utah throughout 2011. However, overall homelessness in Utah is at a four-year low, the report says. Deseret News
