Is there a dedicated staff person within the City that keeps up with homeless encampments? Are those encampments documented in a map or other form?

The City has one Street Outreach Coordinator on staff that goes out daily to visit the homeless encampments and offer services. The City also works with agencies that have teams who go out to the encampments, too. Every encampment is not visited every day. The City's Housing Programs Manager is working with MapForsyth to develop a map showing the number of encampments in each ward. They will also complete a point-in-time count of all persons experiencing homelessness in Winston-Salem on January 31, 2024. The Housing Programs Manager will include information about these efforts in an Information Item on the status of homelessness in the City at February's Community Development/Housing/General Government Committee meeting.
