Chattamatters: Homelessness In Chattanooga
Homelessness continues to rise here in Chattanooga.
Earlier this year, the Chattanooga Regional Homelessness Coalition counted more than a thousand people experiencing homelessness on a given night in Hamilton County.
That number was up from just 201 people two years ago, during the 2020 count.
