Pap Smear Test Update
In response to a recent request by the Board, I asked Public Health employees to compile demographic information on the 185 women who did not receive their pap smear test results in a timely manner. The information, which provides a breakdown by age, race and zip code, can be found here.
Please let me know if you have questions. 2017 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Point-in-Time Count Report Available Tomorrow
Tomorrow, Mecklenburg County will release the 2017 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Point-in-Time Count Report to the Board and public. The report, which will be posted here, is written by the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and was initiated by the Housing Advisory Board of Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Mecklenburg County Community Support Services provided funding for the report.
The report provides an annual snapshot of the number and characteristics of persons experiencing homelessness on one night in January in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. This year’s report has two significant updates to help inform decision-making around housing and homelessness in the community.
For the first time, this report will provide information about the capacity of the homeless services system to meet the need identified in the Point-in-Time Count. By looking at need and capacity together, the report provides a clearer picture of how resources are utilized.
The report will also provide historical Point-in-Time Count numbers that have been reviewed and adjusted to align with current U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development guidelines. This important change allows the report to more accurately reflect the trends in homelessness.
