Every year in January, there's a National Street and Shelter Point-in-Time Count in St. Louis County and across the country.

And every year, despite the best efforts of people like  CHUM's Street Outreach worker Deb Holman, there are a few hundred people in shelters, camping in the woods, sleeping on someone's couch or staying somewhere not meant for - or fit for - human habitation.
