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.

More from Mary Helen Montgomery of Chattamatters, a civic storytelling project at The Enterprise Center.

This piece was adapted for WUTC from a Chattamatters video story - produced by Mary Helen Montgomery, with production assistance from William Newlin. Visit Chattamatters at chattamatters.com.
