NH homeless persons count down from last year

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The number of homeless people in New Hampshire is down 14 percent from last year.

A recent one day count found 2,210 homeless individuals across the Granite State and 358 of them were families.

State officials say the decline is encouraging but say homeless people are still struggling from a difficult economy and an ongoing shortage of affordable housing.
