A U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) count of the country’s homeless will now be conducted annually to maintain year-to-year numbers. United Way of Kershaw County (UWKC) President Donny Supplee said, however, that he “doesn’t put stock in the count.” Although Supplee likes to think that UWKC and its partner agencies are putting a dent in Kershaw County’s homeless population, the count is just a snapshot of what Kershaw County is dealing with, he said.
