Our Mission Statement

Through help and collaboration, we work to reduce homelessness in the Polk County area by expanding housing and creating access to supportive services that can be provided culturally and in ways that uphold human dignity.

Our core values consist of compassion and humanity for helping those in need. As a collaborative, we can recognize the hardships that houseless members may experience and the common we share, regardless of our housing status.

Rural Polk County Data

Every year during the last ten days of January, our region conducts a comprehensive count of the local population experiencing homelessness.

The Point In Time Count measures the prevalence of homelessness in each community and collects information on individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

The Polk County Family & Community Outreach Department partners with multiple agencies to survey people throughout rural Polk County.
