New report shows homeless population declining



2018-05-16T10:57:44+0000

The report, officially released Wednesday, found 2,053 homeless people in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties — down from 2,074 in 2017, a 1 percent drop.

The number of homeless people in Central Florida dropped ever so slightly over the past year, but given the region's extreme lack of affordable housing, some consider the latest homeless census report a major victory.
