Recently a ‘homeless count’ was undertaken with the idea of providing a snapshot of the minimum number of people experiencing unsheltered and temporary homelessness at one point in time. It was called, Ira Mata, Ira Tangata: Auckland’s Homeless Count - the name recognises that each person embodies those who have come before them and those in the future. It reflects that a person is not defined by their homelessness and that people who are homeless are valued – they ‘count’. Funded by Auckland Council and implemented by the Housing First Auckland collective, it was the first time a street count has happened in NZ. Today is World Homeless Day and the findings of the count have been announced, Lillian Hanly takes us through those findings.
