MEDFORD, Ore.-- Starting Monday a team of volunteers will be counting every homeless person in Jackson County.

This is part of a nationwide effort that aims to capture a snapshot of homelessness in the U.S.

This entire week local volunteers will be visiting different sites in the area.

They'll be speaking with people who live on the street, in camps and in their cars.

In addition to counting the total number of homeless people in Jackson County volunteers will also be collecting demographic information like age, race, gender, veteran status and disability status.
