There is a homeless problem in Troy.

During the month of March, 141 men, women and children were homeless and requested services from Joseph’s House & Shelter.  They asked for a warm, safe place to stay the night and a simple meal. 

Our emergency shelters are always full, and staff routinely have to turn down requests from individuals and families.  In a county with a population only around 100,000 people, this number is too high.  While there are many organizations and agencies in place to assist our citizens, more is needed.

The number shouldn’t be 141– it should be zero.
