436 People were counted as homeless in Chester County during the annual survey.
Good News-The census found over 500 homeless in 2020. So 436 is significant improvement.
Bad News-Chester County is one of the wealthiest counties in the country, but there are still over 400(that were found to be counted) homeless people in our county. 35% are veterans.

These numbers help focus county and local resources on the problem.
Asking our state and federal legislators about a living wage for those who can work and more mental health resources for the homeless needing them is something individuals can do.
