Mild temperatures and the promise of free breakfast, clothing and medical checkups may have helped bump up the numbers for this year’s annual surveys to count the Shore area’s homeless and potentially homeless population.

Jeffrey Schwartz, who oversees Project Homeless Count for the Monmouth County Department of Human Services, said 527 people were counted at four sites, up from 291 last year counted at three snow-covered sites. The numbers include counts taken by volunteers who traveled to potential homeless hangouts throughout the county. http://www.app.com/article/20120126/NJNEWS/301260025/Monmouth-homeless-survey-records-greater-numbers

These people are awesome.

All this while Chris Christie works hard at keeping New Jersey's unemployment rate above 9% to help his bud, Mit. Shameful.

Unite in common cause. Hate the things that are wrong in this world. Support each-other in making things right. This is where the healing will begin.

Here is a place where you can directly address change. Take part, it does not hurt and may very well heal/help. Forward the cause of reform and rebirth.

"You" are most welcome GirlFriday. I am just trying to follow my own advice in uniting in common cause.
